GIS Forestry Workshop Locations 2019
UCCE is pleased to offer a series of workshops on Forestry Applications of GIS in 2019. These workshops will bring participants up to speed on the latest GIS software, best practices in cartography, managing data, and spatial analysis.

Workshops will be held in several locations in northern California and include two full days of presentations and hands-on exercises. This workshop has been designed for participants of all levels. Topics include:

  • Intro to ArcGIS Pro, ESRI's newest version of their desktop GIS software
