Recap of MAC URISA 2016 Workshop

With 31 in attendance, we had a full room during the pre-conference workshop day at MAC URISA 2016. I received some good feedback from the attendees and asked them to reach out to me if they have any questions about the materials after the session is over.

The materials – presentation, workbook, and workshop data – are all available for download here.

We also touched upon some additional steps one could take working with ArcGIS and PostgreSQL. Seth Docherty was a great help in demonstrating how we could move GIS data, such as shapefiles and geodatabase feature classes, into a PostGIS-enabled database and begin using it with ArcGIS. There are a few caveats, which I will detail in a later post.

Thank you again to all of the MAC URISA 2016 workshop attendees. If you were unable to make it to the workshop, feel free to browse the materials at the link above. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any comments, questions, or feedback on the materials.
