As part of GIS Day 2014 (see http://gis.lacounty.gov/gisday), John Hickock from our Public Works Department developed a brief training for our 2014 GIS Day event, which will give you an introduction to QGIS and some data resources to get started.
He has made the links and resources available, so we are publishing that information. Click here to go to the page.
LA County GIS Day 2014 was a great success!
We will be posting pictures of the event in the next week or so. If you have any pictures that you would like to share, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also would like to thank our sponsors for making the day a success!
Great talk about the power of GIS!
Happy GIS day! Looking forward to the start of the event in an hour or so.
Parking is not provided for GIS Day, so I wanted to provide a link to a parking lot finder for those who plan on attending:

We’ve had a couple of last minute changes to the booth setup, so we are providing that one final time.
See everyone tomorrow!
Important Documents and links (documents updated November 18th, 2014)
In preparing for GIS Day 2014 the idea of the GeoMentor came back in my purview. I think these are some good links and resources related to Esri’s ConnectED initiative and the GeoMentor
program. For those of us that know teachers – we need to get this information to them.
Here are the links/resources:
Our call as GIS Professionals (from June; from Esri…):
That’s what I wanted to share…seems like there’s GIS Day next week, but then there’s a whole lot more after that.
There is one week left before GIS Day, and the GIS Day committee would like to provide you with the final set of documents for GIS Day, including the three presentation tracks, the training track, and the booth map.
Please review these document and let us know if you have any questions. More complete information is available at http://gis.lacounty.gov/gisday
