    This fall we are excited to offer two new webinar-based trainings focused on developing practical mapping, analysis and communication skills using ArcGIS Pro & ArcGIS Online. Each webinar will take place over the course of 6 working days (Tuesday-Tuesday), including a virtual training, Q&A session, and homework. For training objectives and logistics, please see the NACDD GIS webpage. Participants can sign up for one or two modules.  Registration is first-come, first-served and limited to 25 participants.

     

    If you are unsure about signing up for either, please contact Joshua Tootoo @ jt28@rice.edu for a conversation about your skills and whether a workshop is right for you.

     

    Webinar 1: Tuesday, October 30 to Tuesday, November 2

    Introduction to ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online                                                REGISTER HERE

    For those with little or no GIS experience/skills. In this one-week intensive web-based GIS training course, we will discuss how to manage a map project and symbolize data in ArcGIS Pro. You will explore the ways ArcGIS Pro works with ArcGIS Online to assist map creation and sharing.

     

    Webinar 2: Tuesday November 27 to Tuesday December 4

    Understanding geographic access through proximity-based analyses      REGISTER HERE

    For those with at least an intermediate level of GIS experience/skills. In this module we will consider the concepts of access with respect to healthcare and resources. We will compare and contrast different techniques for measuring the ease at which healthcare and resources can be reached in space; and also apply methods that quantify geographic accessibility for populations of interest and communicate your results in a map.
