Course Announcement: Working with Geodatabases and Linear Referencing
GeoSpatial Training Services would like to announce the availability of a new Internet based, instructor led course. Working with Geodatabases and Linear Referencing, taught by John Schaeffer of Juniper GIS, is designed to teach students all the fundamentals of the Geodatabase; creating and managing the geodatabase, using domains, subtypes and topology to better manage your data, using images with the geodatabase, and using specialized editing tools to correct and clean data, and creating routes.
Students will learn how to use Geodatabases by working through two realistic projects. The first project is preparing data for a burn plan on the Florida Panther Refuge; the second is working with stream data from the Wenatchee National Forest to analyze fish populations.
December 7th – 18th, 2009.
This course assumes you are comfortable with using ArcGIS 9.x for general GIS tasks and that you have had some editing experience. The course is written for ArcGIS 9.3.1, but will work with 9.2 and 9.3, though the dialog boxes might be slightly different.
The course is divided into three sections.
In the first section we will look at the basics of creating and managing a Geodatabase, and then converting data to the geodatabase format.
In the second section, we’ll show you how to use the geodatabase to validate or check you data for attribute and spatial errors, how to make data entry easier, and how to edit with Geodatabase Topology.
In the third section, we’ll work with Routes and Linear Referencing. Routes let you attach multiple data tables to linear features for analysis and mapping. The easiest way to think about routes is the milepost numbers you see as you drive down roads. Once you have established a route with “mileposts” you can then link this to multiple data sources. In the last module, we’ll show you a sample extension that will make it easier to manage and create reports on your geodatabase.
