In September, Joel Cusick, GIS Specialist for the National Park Service Alaska Regional Office and Melanie Hans, Wildlife Biologist/GIS Specialist for the Koyukuk/Nowitna National Wildlife Refuge got together to bring three GPS training sessions to National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees. The training sessions were Garmin to GIS: Standards/Setup and Processing of Garmin data for ArcGIS, GeoTagging Photos from the Field, and Trimble Pathfinder Office and TerraSync – Field to GIS. All three courses were held live at the NPS Alaska Regional Office, Anchorage, Alaska and transmitted via video to field offices. Sessions included hands-on training, where students would go outside at their location and collect data to be analyzed in class. Over 30 students participated in the sessions from Maine, Colorado, and all over Alaska. After the success of coordinating these two agencies for the GPS courses, Joel and Melanie will try to hold another GPS course offering next year.
