    URISA Texas and SWIGGIS are proud to present our third

    Geocaching Event!


    Join us with AllTerra Central on April 1st at Mueller Lake Park from 9AM to noon for a GPS demo and 1 to 4PM for a family fun, geocaching day, rain or shine. Furry friends are welcome! 

    GPS Demo Portion

    9am - noon

    AllTerra Central will kick things off with an explanation of the field data gathering process in relation to their equipment and how it relates to GIS. They will then provide guidance and GPS equipment that will allow you to set geocache points as we travel throughout the park.

    NOTE: Those who attend this portion of the event will not be eligible for the Geocache prizes but will only be receiving a hands-on demonstration of using GPS equipment.

    Geocache Trivia Portion

    1-4pm

    Each Geocache location will reveal a Texas Geography trivia question. There will be 1st and 2nd place prizes for the team or individual who correctly answer all the questions and discover each spot in the shortest time! We will be using Esri's Survey 123 for the game so please have this preloaded on your phones, help will be available at check-in if needed. The game will be scored based on everyone's individual start and end times, so you can come and go as you please. Prizes will be mailed to winners. Winners will be announced within the week following the event.

    1st Place: $50 gift card

    2nd Place: $25 gift card

    Introduction to SQL for Enterprise Databases

    April 5, 2023

    8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    1410 E Renner Rd #100, Richardson, TX 75082


    This tutorial is designed for people who are new to SQL and would like to use it to answer questions with data. SQL is the cornerstone of data analysis—it's used for accessing, cleaning, and analyzing data stored in databases. It can be used to quickly answer questions and analyze data. This class will focus on SQL operations within an ESRI geodatabase environment consisting of feature classes, related tables, and attachment tables and include SQL code examples that could be reused in your environment. The following topics will be covered:

    1.       Important Enterprise Database Design Considerations

    2.       SQL Do’s and Don’ts for Enterprise Databases

    3.       SQL Operations


    SELECT - WHERE - LIKE - IN - BETWEEN -

    AND - OR IS NULL - ORDER BY


      4.       SQL Data Manipulation


      COUNT - SUM - AVG - GROUP BY - CASE - 

      DISTINCT - INNER JOINS - OUTER JOINS - LEFT JOINS -

       LEFT JOINS - UNION - SELF JOINS


        Requires: General knowledge of GIS.

        Class materials and a workbook will be provided for each student.


        Schedule:

        8:00 AM - 8:30 AM - Breakfast/Snacks provided 

        8:30 AM - 12:00 PM - Intro to SQL

        Instructor:

        John May

        John has been using ESRI products and doing GIS since 1989. During that time he has used GIS for many diverse applications from site selection and analysis for banks and retail businesses to land and endangered species management for the USFS and DOE. During the last decade the range of his projects included work for the Department of Homeland Security, the Tarrant Regional Water District, several major Oil and Gas companies, and the Florida Department of Transportation. Johns' specialties are using native RDMS capabilities in concert with SQL Server Reporting Services to extend the value and utility of web enabled GIS platforms.

                The Benefits of Certification in the Geospatial Profession


                Presentation Outline:


                This discussion will focus on the value and growth of GIS professional certification for both the individual as well as the geospatial community.  In addition, we will talk about where the GISCI and the GISP certification are heading.

                About the Speaker:


                 

                Tony Spicci has been active in the geospatial community for over 30 years. He began his professional career with the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) in 1992 building a team of research specialists that included technology, geospatial, biometrics and social science professionals to conduct and support science within the Department. He recently retired from MDC and is currently the Executive Director of the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI). The GISCI promotes the advancement of proficient GIS professionals through its international GISP® (Certified GIS Professional) certification program. The Institute fosters rigorous professional and ethical standards, community engagement, and professional mentoring within the GIS industry.
                Tony is an active member of the Missouri GIS Advisory Committee, National States Geographic Information Council, Missouri Geographic Names Board, and a past member of the National Geospatial Advisory Committee. Tony helped lead the effort to create the Coalition of Geospatial Organizations (COGO) where he serves today.
                In addition to working for the GISCI, Tony is a member of Missouri Task Force 1, a FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Team and a volunteer with the Boone County Fire Protection District. On fall weekends he can be found on the sidelines officiating for the Father Tolton Trailblazers, the Mizzou Tigers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
