AGENDA
Manifold “How To” Instructional Session - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
This session covers a basic introduction to Manifold. The session is very flexible and the
idea is to work through a small live project provided by one of the users. To help facilitate
this concept of ‘hands on learning’ please submit Manifold topics you would like to share or
present with the group. Topics for instruction are wide open and can range from analysis to
map layout. The session will be led by Johanna Pfalz.
Morning coffee break courtesy of Eclipse GIS

Lunch – 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Informal Discussion and Presentations – 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm - Show us what you have
been working on using Manifold GIS. Bring your cool maps and wicked analysis.
Afternoon coffee break courtesy of GeoBorealis Spatial Data Management

Please register and/or send submissions to Johanna Pfalz at Johanna.pfalz@telus.net or
to William Elliott at wfelliott@geoborealis.ca or contact us at 250.847.3822.

No computer technology is supplied, but you are encouraged to bring your laptop with an
active Manifold license.

WAURISA Announces its Fall 2008 Workshop

Best Practices for Developing Geographic Information Models

Monday, November 17, 2008 - Hilton Garden Inn - Issaquah, Washington

Workshop Details:

Even with decades of experience, effective design of a GIS database remains a combination of art and science. This workshop shows how you can build on your existing data and skills to take advantage of the latest generation of GIS tools and practices for database design. Exercises include developing use cases, conceptual and logical data models, and applying object-oriented design patterns for commonly used GIS database structures.

Specific topics to be covered include:

· The key phases in iterative database design Developing use cases

· Using database templates to build on your existing data sources Ten design patterns for GIS database structures and elements

· Ten steps to follow for conceptual, logical, and physical information modeling

· Understanding the relationships between your map layers and geographic database objects

Instructor: Douglas Adams, Systems Analyst, Baltimore County, Maryland

URISA Certified Workshop: Best Practices for Developing Geographic Information Models is a URISA Certified Workshop. URISA – The Association for Geospatial Professionals – developed the course content and certified our instructor. The URISA Workshop Development Committee ensures that topics are timely, content provides value, and instructors are subject matter experts and skilled educators. For more information about URISA Certified Workshops, see: http://urisa.org/workshops

GIS Certification Points: Those who complete the Best Practices for Developing Geographic Information Models workshop can earn 0.2 education points towards their GISCI Certification (see: http://www.gisci.org/ ).

Intended Audience: This material is intended for technical managers and designers of GIS databases and applications. Skilled database users will also benefit. No programming experience is required.

Lunch and Refreshments: Your registration includes lunch along with morning and afternoon break refreshments.

Workshop Location: The workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Seattle/Issaquah on November 17, 2008 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

After the 1st edition of Geotunis2007 and taking into account the negotiations between the various scientific specialists from several countries, the role of the technology of Geographic Information Systems and Science annexes in the development and study of natural resources, impact of climate change and its relation with the principles of design and development and the progress of research in both fields promising, we took into consideration the suggestion of Dr. Lotfi El Moumni and Geotunis2008 topic for this year is:

"Natural resource management and study of the impact of climate change with geographic information systems, science and space technologies. "

Our Tunisian Association of Digital Geographic Information invites you researchers and specialists for participation with your research to the development of scientific knowledge in the field of Geomatics and geographic information systems.

 

Axe 1: geomatics technologies are appropriate in the exploration and management of natural resources?

• Remote GIS: A useful synergy.
• GPS and GIS for mobile mapping precision.
• Applicability of geographic information technology :

-- Agriculture.
-- Fisheries Management (trawling and impact on the fishery resources), and aquaculture.
-- Livestock and grazing.
-- Exploration of mines.

Principle 2: The water resources sustainability and / or carried on operations.
