Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for LSRPs
May 22, 2019 | 8:00am-12:30pm

This half-day course is intended for non-users of GIS technology. It is NOT hands-on with GIS software and participants will NOT learn how to build, manage or use GIS databases.

Geographic Information Systems and their underlying databases incorporate location information along with other data to allow LSRPs to conceptualize the position of data points at their sites along with the hydrogeologic and hydrochemical signatures associated with these points. GIS databases can help to minimize inaccuracies and errors in the position of this data with respect to the site and make it easier for the LSRPs to visualize site conditions and behavior over time. The use of appropriate GIS and database development techniques can be particularly helpful when contaminated sites lie close to boundaries or sensitive receptors, and the status or data trend of the sample locations needs to be known.

Students attending this course will obtain a basic and introductory understanding of GIS and the underlying data format, site characterization tools available in GIS, availability of public GIS compatible data, and methods for linking field collected data with GIS. This course is developed as lecture style with descriptions and presentations of concepts and case studies, students are not required to bring their own computers.

COURSE DESCRIPTION 

The course is formatted to provide students with a baseline understanding of GIS database development and capabilities. GIS will be put in context with existing data packages more commonly used to facilitate students understanding of GIS's capabilities. The course will provide students with an understanding of:

  1. What a GIS is, what the limitations are and uses of GIS.
  2. What existing database and mapping platforms are compatible with GIS software.
  3. How to locate GIS resources to assist in procuring site data (mostly free to the public) to assimilate with an LSRP specific site.
  4. How to develop a properly formatted database in order to make data more GIS compatible or to work with a GIS professional more effectively.
  5. What data presentation techniques are available including options for hosting data on-line (kml) and interfacing site data such as images and laboratory information with GIS.
