In collaboration with the Indiana Society of Professional Land Surveyors (ISPLS), Members of the The Indiana Geographic Information Council (IGIC) presented one full-day and two half-day GIS workshops at the ISPLS Annual Convention. Over 100 conference goes attended these sessions. By attending these sessions, Surveyors earned Continuing Education Credits. IGIC hopes to offer these classes again at other times during the year. If you are interested, please email email@example.com.

Indiana GIS Resources for Surveyors Workshop
Abstract: This workshop will provide detailed information about the GIS resources freely available for use through the Indiana Geographic Information Council, the IndianaMap, the Indiana Spatial Data Portal, Open Web Services, and other Internet resources.
Speakers: Phil Worrall, Rick Hill, Anna Radue, Mike Condre
Abstract: The Indiana Geographic Information Councilâ€™s (IGIC) Waters Workgroup has designed a program to improve the U.S. Geological Surveyâ€™s National Hydrography Data (NHD) for the waters of Indiana. As a result, The State of Indiana, Geographic Information Office issued a Request for Proposal in 2010, and in 2011 Awarded and signed a contract with AECOM to build a new Local-Resolution NHD dataset for the State of Indiana. This new hydrography data for Indiana will include: corrected NHD stream and lake names, improved positional accuracy (1:1,200 or 1:2,400 scale hydrography features aligned to Orthophotography 2011-2013 where available, but no later than 2005), consistent hydrographic densities (based on 6-acre drainage catchments), and updated related hydro features.
This 3 hour workshop is intended to provide detailed information about the NHD statewide program, the components, standards, output products produced, and how to use these data to support surveying and mapping projects and applications.
Speakers: Mike Martin, Phil Worrall, David Nail, Mike Condre, Susan Phelps, John Hendricks, Peter Perry
Indiana GIS Orthophotography and LiDAR Program Workshop
Abstract: The state of Indiana has begun a three-year program to provide high-resolution Orthophotography and LiDAR elevation data for the entire state of Indiana. In 2011, imagery and elevation data was collected and processed for the center column of 30 counties, with the eastern and western columns scheduled for 2012 and 2013 respectively. All of the resulting data products will be made publically available and free of charge. These new datasets will be used by numerous state, local government and private firms to support multiple applications including engineering planning, economic development, emergency management, disaster response, cross-section and contour generation, 3D modeling/visualization and more.
This full-day workshop is intended to provide detailed information about the statewide program, the components, standards, and products produced by each system, and how to use these data to support surveying and mapping projects and applications.
Speakers: Jim Sparks, Robert N. Wilkinson (GIS Bob), Robert W. Wilkinson (Survey Bob), David Nail, Dave Knipe, Jeff Padgett & Todd Schmidt
