DETAILS
In this intermediate-level class, learn the theoretical background of watershed analysis within a Geographic Information System to develop a familiarity with common methods, tools and frameworks for investigation. Through extensive hands-on training, gain practice with diverse components of ArcGIS 10 series software and related tools. Exercises explore basic skills for working with watersheds and raster data types using tools such as Spatial Analyst, ArcToolbox and Model Builder.

Students will gain experience with fundamentals related to performing raster queries and calculations and discover how to use Digital Elevation Models to derive slope and drainage area parameters for watersheds, and create vector hydrography. The course covers basic automation using modelbuilder and also guides students in developing their own algorithms and where to look for future learning.

It is strongly recommended that students have prior training in ESRI (ArcGIS) or similar software. Completion of "GIS for Resource Managers and Professionals" or "Introduction to Geographic Information Systems" is sufficient for success in this course. Advanced students may skip directly to GIS for Watershed Analysis: Advanced, but the courses are complementary and together provide a strong foundation for GIS-based watershed analyses.

Instructor: Nick Santos is a programmer, GIS specialist, web developer and environmentalist. He works at the Center for Watershed Sciences at the University of California, Davis, where he develops GIS-based software and databases to help analyze and understand environmental impacts and indicators. Santos is the founder and executive director of Environmental Consumer, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that develops actionable information and resources for consumers looking to take the next step to reduce their impact.
