Title: 2010 Teaching with Spatial Technology (TwiST) Workshop

Dates: 6/ 28 – 7/1, 2010

M-TR: 8am – 5pm

Audience: Middle and High school teachers and college educators.

Price: $400

For more information or to register visit www.iagt.org/twist


Description: Educators in K-12 and college faculty will learn how Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS) and remote sensing work. Teachers, split into different tracks, learn how to develop lesson plans and incorporate these technologies into the classroom. For the Introductory and Advanced tracks, each of the first three days is devoted to learning GPS, GIS, and remote sensing. The last two days of the workshop are devoted to incorporating lesson plans that support experiential and community-based mapping projects using GIS.


Title: Using Popular Online Mapping Sites

Dates: 3/22, or 7/27, 2010

6:30pm – 8:30pm

Audience: General Public

Price: $35


Have you ever used Google Maps© or Mapquest© to get directions? Ever wonder how this works and what else you can do on these websites? This 2 hour class will cover how to use these websites, understand how it gets you from Point A to Point B, and beyond, and review other interesting features these and similar mapping websites offer. People are using these mapping websites for personal and business needs.



Title: Using GPS

Dates: 3/8 or 8/3, 2010

6pm – 8pm

Audience: General Public

Price: $35


Description: Have you ever wanted to know more about GPS or have you received a GPS unit for Christmas that you still have not used? This 2 hour class will teach the basics behind the Global Positioning System (GPS) and how to use a hand-held GPS unit. Participants will become familiar with a variety of uses for GPS and gain hands-on experience with a hand-held GPS unit. This class will touch on the use of GPS for a variety of navigation purposes. A personal GPS unit is not required for this course.

Space is limited.


Title: Using Online Technology for Watershed Stewardship

Dates: 2/22, 5/ 17 or 7/19, 2010
6:30-9:30 PM.

Audience: Local Town Officials, Citizen Organizations, General Public

Price: $49


Description: Understanding and managing watersheds to protect water quality is becoming increasingly important. In New York State, land use decisions that dictate the use and control of the land are made at the local level. A variety of technologies are now available to enhance these processes and greatly improve access to data and information. Using data describing the Owasco Lake watershed as examples, discussion will include the importance of understanding environmentally sensitive areas and the use of computer modeled results in watershed management. Participants will be introduced to the Owasco Watershed Network (OWN), a new resource for Owasco Lake information released in January of 2010.  The OWN is a watershed-level information network, created to cause a dramatic improvement in the distribution and sharing of critical environmental information among the concerned public, businesses, researchers, educators and government stakeholders. Participants will also receive training in the use of the Owasco Watershed Viewer and how geospatial data and 3D visualization can transform the way we think about and view a watershed.  Participants will receive a copy of the Viewer as part of the course.

Limit 12- 15  people per session.



Title: Introduction to Remote Sensing

Dates: 4/ 29; or 6/17, 2010

Thursday: 9am – 12pm

Audience: Planners, Engineers, Landscape Architects, Surveyors

Price: $250


Description: This workshop will cover remote sensing basics, remote sensing data collection and the integration of remote sensing imagery into current generation GIS tools. This workshop is targeted at both geospatial practitioners and decision makers, and will provide a forum for outreach, education and sharing of lessons learned that is designed to increase the understanding of remote sensing as a strong geospatial component within the planning, engineering, surveying and landscape architect professions. This workshop will engage the audience, encourage interest in using this geospatial technology and provide a solid introduction to remote sensing technology.

Space is limited.

PDU, CEU and CM accreditation pending
