The SHRUG GIS Workshop Planning committee would like your input on the
pre-workshop training classes to be held Tuesday & Wednesday, November 12 &
13, 2002.

We are anticipating offering three classes, running consecutively, and the
instructors are ESRI certified. The cost is dependant on the class and the
number of students, but it will be less expensive than taking the class at
an ESRI training site.

Listed below are possible training opportunities.  If you are interested one
of these classes, please send an e-mail to indicating
your choice.  I need a rough estimate, not a commitment!  And of course,
your suggestions for training classes not on the list are also welcome.  We
hope to have the pre-workshop classes selected by the first of May so please
let me hear from you by Friday, April 26th.

Introduction to ArcGIS I (for ArcView 8, ArcEditor 8, and ArcInfo 8):
introduces students to ArcGIS and provides the
foundation for becoming a successful ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo user.
Participants learn how to use ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox and explore
how these applications work together to provide a complete GIS software
solution. The course covers fundamental GIS concepts as well as how to
create, edit, and work with georeferenced spatial data. Attendees learn how
to manipulate tabular data, query a GIS database, and present data clearly
and efficiently using maps and charts.

Migrating from ArcView GIS 3.x to ArcView 8: introduces ArcView 3.x users to
the features and architecture of ArcView 8. Students learn how to use the
new Windows-based applications-ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox-and
explore how these applications work together. Students gain a basic
understanding of ArcView 8 and the experience they need to enroll in many
other ESRI courses including Introduction to ArcGIS II (for ArcView 8,
ArcEditor 8, and ArcInfo 8). Participants learn how ArcView 3.x terminology
and features relate to the new terminology and features of ArcView 8. They
also learn how to create, edit, and georeference spatial data, as well as
manipulate tabular data, query a GIS database, perform spatial analysis, and
present data clearly and efficiently using maps and graphs. Many of the
topics covered in this course are similar to those in Introduction to ArcGIS
I (for ArcView 8, ArcEditor 8, and ArcInfo 8). Attendees who complete this
course should not enroll in Introduction to ArcGIS I (for ArcView 8,
ArcEditor 8, and ArcInfo 8).

Introduction to ArcSDE using ArcInfo 8: details the architecture and
fundamental concepts of ArcSDE software and storage structures.  Through
lectures and hands-on exercises, participants view and query layers in an
ArcSDE database using ArcCatalog and ArcMap. They also create new ArcSDE
layers by loading existing, file-based geographic data sources, such as
shapefiles, coverages, and images, into an ArcSDE server. Exercises are
supported with in-depth discussions and demonstrations of how ArcSDE
clients, servers, and underlying DBMSs work. Topics from this course are
included throughout the ArcSDE administration courses. Students taking any
ArcSDE administration course do not need to attend this class.

Introduction to ArcIMS: introduces students to ArcIMS-an integrated approach
for creating and maintaining geography-based Web sites. ArcIMS offers
powerful GIS capabilities in an easy-to-use framework, changing the way
users can access and interact with Internet mapping and GIS data. Class
participants gain hands-on experience using ArcIMS to build, utilize, and
customize Internet mapping applications. This course also empowers attendees
with a conceptual overview of how GIS mapping works on the Internet.
