Goal:  Provide overview of geospatial technologies for monitoring and mapping crop agriculture, with hands on experience using on practical examples.

Workshop ContentThis workshop has been designed for participants interested in agriculture with little to no experience in GIS. An introductory presentation will get you up to speed on what kind of analysis GIS may be used for, as well as the basic characteristics of spatial data. After this brief lecture you will follow an interactive exercise that will introduce you to data processing with Pix4Dmapper and ArcGIS software applications, while using either free and open source online data or drone imagery to analyze and map crop land in the California's southern and central valleys.
