The GIS Education Center at City College of San Francisco is offering a
workshop titled "GIS and the Urban Environment," taught by Rick Kos, a GIS
Lecturer at San Jose State University. Details are below:
This three week workshop focuses on the applications of GIS for the study
of urban systems and will include transportation analysis using regional
public transit data, demographic analysis using United States Census data,
and land use planning using geospatial data acquired from Bay Area
municipalities. Students taking the workshop will be divided into two
groups. For those students new to GIS, step-by-step tutorials will be
provided that will introduce you to ESRI?s ArcGIS software and its use for
analysis of urban land use scenarios. For those students with recent GIS
background, more advanced exercises will be provided which will focus on
team-based problem-solving using current geospatial data acquired from
local urban planning agencies.
The workshop will be held at the Downtown (4th Street) campus between 9:30
- 11:30 a.m. on April 18, April 25 and May 2.
The workshop is very cost-effective: $110 ($100 with early enrollment).

I hope to see you there! Please feel free to email me if you have any
