Geographic Information System, otherwise known as GIS, is an incredibly powerful tool that is used in all aspects of life. Through the use of interactive, web-based maps, GIS allows for in-depth analysis on just about any topic. Story Maps add to the power of GIS by allowing you to combine maps with narrative text, images and multimedia content. The Arizona Game and Fish Department is pleased to announce a brand new professional development opportunity that will introduce educators to this exciting and easy-to-use technology tool. This two-day workshop consists of two parts. During the first section, participants will learn how to use GPS and other digital data collection tools to develop multi-layered, online maps. In the second section, teachers will use their maps as the foundation to create a unique story map. This is considered a working training where a usable product will be developed at the end. The workshop will take onSaturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10, 2016 in the Phoenix area. Specific location information will be sent to accepted participants. Workshop will begin at 9amand will last until 3pm each day. The workshop is free. However, space is limited and registration is required. Registration does not guarantee participation.
