More Effective with Games (Half-Day)
Sunday, February 9, 2020 - 8:30 AM - 12:00 Noon
Instructor:
Tim Nolan, GISP, CGCIO, Applications Manager, Collin County, McKinney, TX

Many of us love games in our youth. As we got older, we stopped playing as much as we used to. Why did we stop playing? We learned through games in our earlier years. We can continue to learn through games now. Games can an excellent way to accelerate creative work and understand problems. In this hands-on workshop we will use games as a method to make your work more effective. Plus, we will have fun doing it. We will cover techniques to visualize your work and limiting your work-in-progress. We will conduct games that will teach us ways to rethink how we approach problems. We will even demonstrate the misconception of multitasking. Finally, we will wrap up the workshop with a nice #LeanCoffee

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Will learn personal management and prioritization
  • Explore the value of games
  • Learn/Facilitate effectiveness through games

OUTLINE: 
  • Personal Kanban
  • Games on Flow
  • Learn/Facilitate a #LeanCoffee discussion

Getting to Know the National Hydrography Dataset (Full-Day)
Getting to Know the National Hydrography Dataset (Full-Day)
Sunday, February 9, 2020 - 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Instructors:

Jane SchaferKramer, Geographic Data Specialist, California Department of Water Resources, Davis, CA
Drew Decker, U.S. Geological Survey, National Map Liaison, San Diego, CA
Carol Ostergren, US Geological Survey, Geographer, Santa Cruz, CA


The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is the mapping of the surface waters of the U.S. and the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) represents drainage areas delineated to nest in a multi-level, hierarchical drainage system. They are integral parts of USGS’ National Map and serve as an authoritative common framework for users and organizations to tie into their own data. This course provides an opportunity to discover the information in these datasets and to get comfortable using them for planning, analysis, and general mapmaking, and introduces the ways the user community can get involved with stewardship of the data.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Gain familiarity with the background, the information contained within, and the current state of the NHD, WBD, and NHDPlus
  • Be comfortable using it in a GIS for mapping and analysis
  • Understand how to contribute to the improvement of the data

OUTLINE: 
  • The data model and definitions of the features and tables in the NHD geodatabase
  • Tips for mapping and cartography with the NHD
  • Tracing flow connectivity on the geometric network
  • Linear referencing along the flowlines
  • Applications of the NHD and WBD
  • An introduction to NHDPlus and its applications
  • Keeping NHD updated: California stewardship and community participation

HANDS-ON: For the best experience please bring a laptop with ArcMap (any version, any license level) software and license; QGIS may be used if ArcMap is not available.

AUDIENCE: GIS users (cartographers, scientists, planners, engineers, mapping app developers, students, data analysts, and others) who would like to discover the information contained in the NHD, WBD, and NHDPlus and how to use them in ArcGIS for mapping and analysis.

PREREQUISITES: Beginner-level working knowledge of ArcGIS or QGIS

Roadmap to Redistricting (Half-Day)
Roadmap to Redistricting (Half-Day)
Sunday, February 9, 2020 - 1:00 - 5:00 PM
Instructor:
Sophia Garcia, GIS Analyst, Dolores Huerta Foundation, Bakersfield, CA

In the spring of 2018 the DHF led the community efforts for the Kern High School District (KHSD) redistricting process to advocate for 2 Latino majority districts in the largest high school district in the state of California. Through the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and community input, DHF created inclusive districts increasing community representation for the roughly 38,000 KHSD students and their families. DHF mobilized community members to advocate for the “community map” and was present at every meeting throughout the process.

Dolores Huerta Foundation has partnered with four UCSC Everett Program, an undergraduate student led initiative that partners with community based organizations to promote social justice and sustainability across the globe, students to create a Roadmap to Redistricting.
The Everett students are documenting and digitizing the entire KHSD DHF process to create a template for other communities in California to follow in 2021. They will also create fair district boundaries for boards across the central valley so communities can present their own community map. Our goal is to have a community led 2021 Roadmap to Redistricting.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Best practices of redistricting
  • Engaging community organizations in redistricting process
  • Participatory GIS
  • How to equitably be apart of the redistricting process as a GIS professional

OUTLINE:
  • How to identify injustices in your community 
  • Federal and state guidelines legal requirements for redistricting 
  • Kern High School District public redistricting 2018
  • Dolores Huerta Foundation Community Redistricting strategy 
  • Learning points: Pulled from community interviews 
  • Takeaways: How can you be involved in your local redistricting process

AUDIENCE:
GIS Professionals
Students
Educators
Those interested in Participatory GIS
Those interested in Equity and Social Justice GIS
