TEC7115 - GIS Use for ES Field Stations

Course CodeTEC7115
Course TitleGIS Use for ES Field Stations
DescriptionLearn how to design and use a geographic information system (GIS) for a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Ecological Services (ES) field station. This intermediate-level GIS course addresses large-area, small-scale GISs covering a state-wide/multi-watershed region, and how to apply to ES field office tasks. Participants learn how to apply GIS development to endangered species, contaminants, permit review, and other field station activities. Instruction also includes an overview of GPS application and integration with a field station GIS, and how a field office GIS can interact with the “TAILS” Tracking and Integrated Logging System.
*Learn how to collect basic location data from a GPS unit and incorporate that data into a GIS and
*Apply GIS software analysis techniques (including modeling) to ES field station projects.
Target Audience:
USFWS ES field station personnel who have basic knowledge of GIS and want to be more involved in intermediate-level applications (such as modeling) of GIS to field station projects. Completion of 'GIS Introduction for Conservation Professionals' (TEC7112) is recommended and a working experience with ArcGIS software is required.
