April 10 - Pre-Conference Workshops and Tours

8:30 AM - 12:00 PM Introduction to Python for ArcGIS
Programming tools are now a standard feature within GIS software packages and allow GIS users to automate, speed up, and become more precise in their data management and analytic work. This workshop is designed for GIS users who have little to no experience with computer programming and will cover core Python programming language concepts specifically for use in ArcGIS. The workshop will focus on guiding participants through hands-on exercises designed to provide the essential skills to programmatically manipulate data as part of an ArcGIS workflow. This workshop is designed to be preparation for the following workshop on Advanced Python for ArcGIS, but may be taken independently.
 
1:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Advanced Python for ArcGIS
Building on the introduction to Python for ArcGIS, this workshop will expand on those skills to further use Python in ArcGIS. The workshop will focus on the ArcPy Python site package to expand geoprocessing capabilities with Python. Participants will learn to build geoprocessing scripts using ArcGIS Notebooks covering different ArcGIS tasks and workflows. The workshop will also cover how to create custom script tools in ArcGIS toolboxes for reuse and sharing. Participants will also learn skills for error handling.

 
   
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Tour Two Penn State Centers (30 person limit)
Join us for tours of two Penn State Centers that provide geospatial related services – the Donald W. Hamer Center for Maps & Geospatial Information and the Center for Immersive Experiences. Both are housed on the ground floor of the Pattee Library in the center of Penn State’s University Park campus. Center staff will give an overview of the resources and services provided, respond to questions, and provide opportunities to interact with digital resources and equipment. Limited parking is available, but there is free transportation to/from the centers from the Penn Stater. You can sign up for these tours when registration opens.
