2-page handout with basic description and images explaining both GIS and GPS. Includes links to the NH state GIS database, NH's free online mapping program and the UNH Cooperative Extension GIS/GPS training center.
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.
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 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 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 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).
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.
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.
