GPS and GIS

NATIONAL GPS CERTIFICATION

LEVEL I

 THE FOUNDATIONS
 
MAP, COMPASS AND GPS

“What do those numbers mean anyway?’ - the relationship between the map, the compass and the GPS unit.  The continuum of GPS familiarity flows from basic to more complex, from knowledge/content through to application.  This is an experiential, “hands-on” opportunity with the GPS unit.  The resource is the manual and DVD ‘What do those numbers mean anyway.’

LEVEL II

 EXTENDING YOUR GPS EXPERIENCE
 
MAPPING SOFTWARE, CREATING A SPATIAL FILE

Using a mapping software, creating applicable digital files with spatial data and imagery.  This extends the “capture” of data in the field and bringing it all together in a mapping environment.  The resource includes a CD of content in Power Point format.

LEVEL III

GETTING TO FIRST BASE WITH G.I.S.
 
POINTS, LINES, POLYGONS, CREATING A MAP AND DATA QUERIES

“Everyone and everything” will become part of a Geographic Information System (GIS).  This allows the participant to bring GPS data into the GIS environment.  Also, basic queries are covered related to the spatial layers of data.  This is a foundations perspective for those considering embracing GIS from a “users” or management perspective.  The resource includes Power Point format and the utilization of the ESRI – ArcGIS software (site licence).
