Wondering how to make maps with field data? This session will give you a hands-on understanding of how GPS units gather data. Once you have the data, ensuring it is viable, we will plot a CEP (Circular Probability of Error) and correct the gathered data for presentation. This workshop builds on “Getting Started with ArcGIS” (a recommended prerequisite for those with no previous GIS experience) but isn’t absolutely necessary.
We heard you! In March we asked you to "have your say" about current library spaces. The results are now on display in Dana Porter and Davis Centre library foyers. Please come by to take a look and let us know what you think!

This workshop introduces users to a different environment to create maps with GIS.
You may have heard of GIS, but what exactly is it, and more importantly, how can you use it in your own research and academic work? This introductory workshop presents the basic concepts of GIS and will teach you the skills you need to find geospatial data, map it, and discover new dimensions of information.
