GIS/Geomatics Workshop

October 19, 2018

Saint Mary’s University
923 Robie Street
Halifax, B3H 3C3 Canada

Full Day Professional Development Workshop in Geomatics/GIS, with Greg Baker
9am – 4pm
Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Registration fee: $25

It is fair to say that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have revolutionized many fields, archaeology included. This professional development workshop is designed to provide relative beginners and moderately proficient users with a conceptual overview of the subject as well as practical, step-by-step instruction on how to perform several useful types of data manipulation. During the field component of this workshop, we will collect data points using handheld GPS devices and high-accuracy Leica Viva Smart Antennas and import this data into the GIS.

Your instructor, Greg Baker, is the Research Instrument Technician at Saint Mary’s University’s Department of Geography and Environmental Studies.
