This class is organized into a one day session for attendees to be exposed to the history and evolution of GPS systems, fundamentals of GPS data collection, and to the collection and post processing of GPS data. Attendees are encouraged to bring GPS units to gain hands-on experience during the session’s field time. This class will train users on the Garmin Map76CSx and 60CSx and Trimble Juno and GeoExplorer GPS receivers. Because of the schedule of this class, questions about operations of other GPS units will not be possible.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own GPS units but are not required for workshop attendance.  A limited number of class demo units will be available for use and attendees can also team up with other attendees for the outdoor exercise.

These classes are planned for a time of the year where rain and windy conditions are likely. Come prepared for a ‘typical field day’ while learning how to maximize your GPS experience.
