Register for August GIS workshop at UNCG

UNCG’s Center for Geographic Information Science will host a GIS workshop in August. The workshop is designed to introduce participants to the environment of GIS, and to get campus researchers started in the practice of using GIS to answer research questions and to present results on a map.

The UNC System purchases robust GIS software. Here at UNCG, that software is available in all ITS computer labs. The Center for GISc seeks to teach the broad academic community how to leverage the capabilities of this under-used resource. Employees of the center will lead participants through a series of hands-on laboratories and examples. This is an excellent opportunity for faculty, staff and students to learn what GIS can do for them.

Dates: Tuesday, Aug. 5 – Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014
Times: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Location: On campus, room TBD
To register, visit http://cgis.uncg.edu/gis-workshop/

There is a limit to 20 total participants. The first 10 paid participants can register for $150. The remaining 10 participants can register for $200.

Each participant must have working knowledge of Microsoft Excel, and a valid UNCG computer log-in. Any questions can be directed to Anna Tapp at aftapp@uncg.edu

The Center for Geographic Information Science is an educational research entity that relies on theories, concepts and applications to solve, analyze and model the geographic aspects of human and natural phenomena. CGISc collaborates with government agencies, non-profit organizations and private corporations.
