Using ArcGIS Online to Collect, Analyze, and Share Data

9:30 am to 3:30 pm
Water Resources Center, Vancouver, WA

Join us for this free hands-on STEAM workshop at the beautiful Water Resources Center on the Columbia where we will explore how to use ArcGIS Online and a variety of other methods to collect, analyze, and share data. Janice Elvidge from the National Park Service will team up with Rick Reynolds from Engaging Every Student and other partners of The River Mile project to show how GIS and other tools can be used to engage students in important real-life science investigations while meeting the Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards. Learn how The River Mile’s network of schools has been helping biologists and wildlife managers by collecting and presenting data on native and invasive crayfish, and how ArcGIS can be used to implement countless other meaningful scientific inquiries with students. Participants will create ArcGIS maps and add information and data layers to them, in addition to utilizing other digital and non-digital data analysis tools.

Space is limited, so please RSVP to Janice Elvidge with your name and organization: Janice_Elvidge@nps.gov.
