GIS Workshops

GIS is a computerized mapping system that stores, displays and analyzes any type of data that has a geographic location. A GIS takes data from a table, spreadsheet, or database and creates a map. It allows you to view, understand, and visualize your data spatially that are simply not possible using rows and columns. GIS is quickly becoming mainstream in most disciplines.

CUC provides support and instruction in GIS and GPS for faculty and staff development, curricular advancement, and student training using ESRI's ArcGIS. You are invited to attend a series of GIS classes at the new GIS Lab in the Claremont Colleges Honnold/Mudd Library. All workshops are in the Honnold/Mudd GIS Lab unless otherwise noted.

Registration

While registration is not required, you are encouraged to register as seating is limited (12 seats). These are hands-on session. Participants also receive an online Virtual Campus Course and the software (ArcGIS 10).

Class sessions

Note: Workshop dates will be continuously be added. Please check back often. For more information please email GIS support.
