This introductory workshop serves as a prelude to a field trip exploring the human, physical, and engineered landscape of the greater New Orleans area. We will be joined by local planning experts who are collaborating with communities to design long-term resilience strategies in the face of chronic threats from flooding, storms, land subsidence, wetland erosion, and sea level rise. This workshop provides context before we travel beyond “the bowl” (i.e., the levee system) to explore human adaptation in one of America’s most hazardous landscapes.

We’ll illustrate how you can build and style custom basemaps for use with your online maps and explore a range of mapping techniques including flow maps, pictorial symbols and cartograms. We’ll also explore how you can create artistic maps with beautiful hillshades, different terrain representation and 3D. We’ll show how to take advantage of new and powerful cartographic features in ArcGIS Pro, where to download some great free cartographic tools and how to begin to think creatively to create beautiful and compelling maps.

If you have ever wondered about the impact of changing the default cell size, compression method, or extent and origin of the raster dataset your ArcGIS tool is about to create, this workshop will explain how these settings impact outputs when projecting raster data, focal and zonal statistics, raster algebra, and more. We will cover the basics of the ArcGIS Raster data model and the importance of seemingly optional properties such as histograms, pyramids, and snap rasters to set the stage for analyzing raster data. Both ArcGIS Desktop’s geoprocessing environment and ArcGIS Pro’s Raster Function Editor will be covered.

W2_9 Should I incorporate GIS or coding activities into my course? Organizer: Coline Dony (AAG) Capacity: 30 Cost/person: $0.00 Room: Studio 3, Marriott, 2nd Floor (J&C) In this workshop, we will provide faculty with resources to help them include small GIS and/or coding activities to their courses even if they do not have a GIS focus. The resources and software platforms that will be suggested will be primarily free and open-source. This will be followed by a guided discussion with the audience on the new skillset geography graduates require. Faculty from across the geography spectrum - from those teaching human and social geography to those teaching physical geography and Earth Sciences - are invited to attend this workshop. This is part of a series of workshops related to the AAG’s Coding Initiative. The challenges associated with Big Data and the ubiquity of spatial data have triggered an increase in the demand for graduates with both spatial thinking and computer programming skills. Because few undergraduate geography programs offer training in computer programming, many employers in the geospatial technology industry face a dilemma: either hire a geographer with limited or no programming skills, or a computer science graduate with limited or no training in geography, spatial thinking, and GIS. The AAG is committed to ensure that new generations of geographers are equipped with the new skills required in order to be productive in our economy well into the future. This AAG initiative will need involvement from faculty, students and employers. For more information about this workshop, do not hesitate to contact Coline Dony at cdony@aag.org.

Despite rapidly evolving and expanding employment opportunities, many students are unfamiliar with the numerous career paths for which a degree in geography can prepare them. Using the AAG publication Practicing Geography: Careers for Enhancing Society and the Environment (Pearson 2013) as a resource, the workshop facilitators -- who are contributing authors to the book -- will introduce participants to a series of classroom activities that have been designed to raise students' awareness of employment prospects for geographers and to help them recognize and articulate the value of their geography training to potential employers. The participants will then break into small groups to work through these exercises, sharing ideas about how to adapt them to the needs of their own students and institutions. This workshop is suitable for educators at all grade levels and career stages.

Capacity: 30
Cost/person: $0.00
Room: J&C Center 
Join us for the fifth annual workshop in a series of themes addressing career advancement and success for women in Geography. This year’s workshop will explore practical ways to exercise a leadership mindset. At any career stage, you can consider yourself a leader and aspire to listen and lead with authority. This requires a perspective that leadership is a thought process and set of skills rather than a given position or title. In this workshop, we will share experiences, discuss the characteristics and contexts for a leadership mindset, and identify practical ways to build skills such as active listening and negotiating. We will promote inclusive ways that women across categories of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, and able-bodiedness can understand and support each other as leaders. Our workshop promotes the practice of a leadership mindset to transcend challenges and grasp opportunities in women’s careers.

Join this interactive workshop session and learn about the practical realities of entering and succeeding in careers in public, private and non-profit sector in the sustainable environment and infrastructure arenas. There are literally hundreds of thousands of these essential service jobs worldwide and they last forever. Employers are actively recruiting people at all skills levels, and are committed to workforce diversity. More geoscientists work in public agencies, private industry and advocacy organizations than academia. These jobs are everywhere, they pay well, if not always financially, then in mission advancement.

Learn about skills employers need and want in employee prospects. Learn how to target and connect effectively with employers, strategies for getting interviews, networking realities, improving your pitch and thriving when you get your dream job. Great for students and transitional employees. Invest in yourself; come and stay for the full workshop.

The session is led by Drew Lehman, Principal of Environment and Education, where he provides career pathway training for college students and professional skills development training for entry level employees and middle skill/senior program managers. At AAG 2016 (San Francisco) and AAG 2017 (Boston) Drew led tours of regional area infrastructure (wastewater, energy, recycling, transportation) operations and will do so again this year in New Orleans.

Drew has a Master’s degree in Environmental Geography from Columbia University. His undergraduate work was at Clark University. He has recruited, hired and trained over a hundred environmental professionals from interns to senior managers in the public and private sector for recycling, green waste and biosolids composting and waste-to-energy facilities nationwide.

Space and time are inseparable, and integrating the temporal aspect of your data into your spatial analysis leads to powerful discoveries. This workshop will build on the cluster analysis methods discussed in Spatial Data Mining I by presenting advanced techniques for analyzing your data in the context of both space and time. We will cover space-time pattern mining techniques including aggregating your data into a space-time cube, emerging hot spot analysis, local outlier analysis, and best practices for visualizing and interpreting your cube. Come learn how to use these new techniques to get the most out of your spatiotemporal data.
