Workshop summary This 5-day workshop is designed for anyone interested in exploring natural and societal resources using GIS and GPS technology. Participants learn to map natural resources and community assets while exploring methods for sharing maps with others. No previous GIS or GPS experience is required. Each participant will have a chance to flex their newly-acquired GIS skills by working on a mapping project during the workshop. Feel free to bring ideas you may have for projects, and we will try to incorporate your ideas within the time constraints of the course.
