FWS Geospatial Webinar DescriptionsGeospatial Webinar Series - April (00:36:54)
Three short, focused presentations (10 minutes each with 5 minutes for questions) each quarter (July, October, January and April) on a wide variety of Geospatial topics including but not limited to; software updates, demonstrations, project success stories, tips and tricks and more! April 28. 2016.
Presenters: Nathan Bush - Mapping Invasive Species Using a Grid; Mark Richardson - Creating Custom Legends in ArcMap; and Justin Epting and Becky Brooks - Incorporating Geospatial Information into FWS Fire Management Planning
Lightning Round Presentations(00:32:47)
EPA Metadata Editor - Kenny Elsner
The EPA Metadata Editor can help you create better metadata faster, and more accurately. This short introduction will get your feet wet on how to use EME and show you the benefits of using this no cost software
Terrain Modeling - Doug Newcomb
Terrain classification can aid in analysis of habitat and analysis of species usage. Classifications can use either a simple 10 class system, or a more detailed terrain analysis. Demonstration will use the GRASS 7.0 r.geomorphon add on.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Trails - Richard Easterbrook
Starting in March of 2006, the Federal Lands Highway Division contracted the collection of geospatial and attribute information for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service trails. This work was completed in 2012 and resulted in three cycles of datasets. These datasets were consolidated by the Natural Resource Program Center and contain a baseline inventory and condition assessment of all non-motorized trails on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands as part of the National Trails Inventory Program. This presentation will demonstrate the contents of dataset and the multiple ways it can be acquired (i.e., web mapping service, ServCat).
Variety of Geospatial Topics: Software Updates, Demonstrations, Project Success Stories, Tips and Tricks (00:42:25)
Presented by Jim Besley (My Favorite Layout Helps for ArcMap), Kurt Snider (From Drums to Maps - 3 keys to great map design from a studio drummer), and Emilie Luciani (Integration of Data Basin and ScienceBase to support Region 8 mapping needs). October 20, 2015.
Three short, focused presentations (10 minutes each with 5 minute for questions) each quarter (July, October, January and April) starting this summer on a wide variety of Geospatial topics including but not limited to; software updates, demonstrations, project success stories, tips and tricks and more!
