Training Materials

ArcGIS Drivers Permit    

Learn GIS basics and how to use ArcGIS 9! These workshop materials are useful for people who have no prior GIS experience, but would like to become familiar with GIS concepts and basic techniques.

Co-occurrence & Habitat Mapping    

These workshop materials cover the use of co-occurrence analysis, both simple and weighted, for compositing a variety of data layers to make important natural resource and societal decisions.

Community Mapping    

These materials designed for educators and others interested in exploring natural and societal resources using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology. The course combines learning about natural resource management and community planning with developing skills in ArcView 3.3 GIS software. Exercises cover how to map natural resources and community assets while exploring protection strategies for their communities.

CommunityViz: Level I    

CommunityViz Scenario 360 is a software tool designed to help communities and regional planners quantify, visualize, and better understand the trade-offs of alternate land use futures at the community, watershed, or site scale. It is now being utilized by a number of regional planning agencies and communities in NH, and interest in its use is expected to increase as it is used in numerous community-level buildouts around the country.

Getting to Know ModelBuilder    

ModelBuilder is a feature of ArcGIS that provides much of the flexibility of a programming language without requiring any familiarity with programming. These workshops materials introduce ArcGIS users to ModelBuilder basics: how it works, how models can be created, edited and used to automate repetitive tasks or to run complex analyses.

Getting to Know NH GRANIT Data Mapper    

These workshop materials are designed for anyone interested in getting a basic introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and learning how to make maps of NH online. The materials focus on NH’s free online GIS mapper (the NH GRANIT Data Mapper).

GIS on Pennies a Day: Test Drive    

Take a variety of full-functioned, free GIS programs for a test drive! This manual bulids on basic concepts from GIS 101: Learning to Map in the Digital Age by giving participants a chance get their hands dirty making maps with free GIS software.

Google Puts the G in GPS    

Learn to bring GPS data into Google Earth and Google Maps, and just as easily, put features from those maps into your GPS! This workshop builds on basic concepts from GPS Basics by providing exploring the ways in which GPS can be used in combination with Google mapping software. 

GPS & You I: GPS Basics    

GPS I covers the basics of GPS technology, how to collect waypoints and how to navigate to points you have collected. Introductory presentations explain the technology behind GPS, while the exercises go into details about the use of handheld GPS receivers. GPS & You I: GPS Basics is the first of the series (followed by GPS II: Pictures, Points & Places and GPS III: Tracks & Routes).

GPS & You II: Pictures, Points & Places    

GPS II covers downloading GPS data from your GPS unit on to your computer for use in GIS programs and Google Earth. In addition, the materials cover the collection of digital photos in conjunction with GPS points, providing an interactive map of your pictures in GIS and Google Earth. GPS & You I: GPS Basics is the first of the series (followed by GPS II: Pictures, Points & Places and GPS III: Tracks & Routes).

GPS & You III: Tracks & Routes    

GPS III covers more sophisticated navigation and data collection. After a brief orientation to tracks and routes, the workshop materials focus on learning to collect tracks (including lines and areas) and to navigate along previously collected tracks (lines) and routes (a series of points). Trimble Mission Planning software is also discussed. GPS & You I: GPS Basics is the first of the series (followed by GPS II: Pictures, Points & Places and GPS III: Tracks & Routes).

GPS for GIS    

These materials cover how to use mapping quality GPS units to collect GIS data! This exercises walk you through the steps necessary to collect GPS data using Trimble Pro XR receivers. GPS data can be combined with other geographic data using GIS to provide a new and more informative way to map your community.

Introduction to ArcGIS    

Learn the basics of working with ArcGIS 9.3 in a hands-on learning environment! These workshop materials will be useful for people who have no prior GIS experience, as well as those who have used ArcView 3.x, but are new to ArcGIS. With a focus on New Hampshire data and applications, these materials cover how to use ArcGIS 9.x to produce attractive, effective maps.

Introduction to ArcView GIS    

These workshop materials cover the basics of working with ArcView 3.3! This course is useful for people who have no prior GIS experience. With a focus on New Hampshire data and applications, the exercises cover how to use ArcView 3.3 to produce attractive, effective maps. These materials are based on an older version of ESRI's GIS software.  For materials on the current versions, please see Introduction to ArcGIS.

Making Maps the Google Way    

Learn how to make interactive and 3D maps using free Google mapping tools! These workshop materials explore the basics of Google Earth and Google Maps with a special focus on creating your own maps to share with others.

Making Maps the Google Way (Google My Maps only)    

Learn how to make online, interactive maps using free Google mapping tools! These workshop materials explore the basics of Google My Maps with a special focus on creating your own maps to share with others.

 

Making Maps the Google Way: Reloaded    

This workshop builds on basic concepts from Making Maps the Google Way by providing more advanced techniques for creating Mashup maps using Google tools. 

Mapping Wildlife Habitat    

These materials describe the process of mapping important wildlife habitat using ArcView 3.3.  This workshop was taught by UNH Cooperative Extension prior to the release of the NH Wildlife Action Plan, but is no longer taught.

Mapping with Handheld GPS    

These workshop materials cover the basics of using Garmin 76 handheld GPS units for navigation and data collection. This workshop has been replaced by GPS & You I: GPS Basics and GPS & You III: Tracks & Routes, both of which are also available for download.

Pictures, Points & Places    

This manual includes step-by-step exercises for using Garmin 76 GPS units and free software to collect GPS coordinates which are automatically linked to digital images captured at those points. This workshop has been replaced by GPS & You II: Pictures, Points & Places, which are is available for download.

Trail Mapping with GPS    

Learn to how to map trails using handheld GPS units! This workshop builds on basic concepts from GPS Basics to provide all of the info and skills you need for your trail mapping project! 

Watershed Analysis    

Exercises cover how to use the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension to display and manipulate data such as the NH Land Cover data and Digital Elevation Models (DEMs). In addition to developing familiarity with these data layers, participants will learn how to apply these tools and data to watershed issues. ArcHydro is introduced in this course and used for watershed delineation.
