Integration of GIS and GPS Technologies Course Description:
This workshop will introduce GIS users to the basic concepts, functionality, accuracy issues and processes of data collection via GPS, demonstrate the integration of GPS data into a GIS, and illustrate how positional error within GPS data may affect the results of a GIS project. Particular attention will be given to the long term effects (i.e. cost savings) of the collection and proper use of accurate data, practical GPS/GIS guidance and good data collection procedures. In addition, attendees will learn about current CSCIC programs and available resources for use in the integration of GPS and GIS technologies.
