2024 Pre-Conference Workshops

Every year, KAM offers some pre-conference workshops in support of its mission to provide educational opportunities to the greater Kansas mapping community. On Tuesday, October 22, 2024, we cordially invite you to attend one or more of these workshops. Attendance at the conference itself is encouraged but not required to participate in a pre-conference workshop. 

Please take note of any supplies that are required before registering.  If you do not have a laptop, please email us to see if we are able to provide one. Typically we have a couple that can be checked out for pre-conference classes, but arrangements must be made ahead of time to ensure that the proper software is installed.

We plan to offer more workshops, but the details are not ready to post to this site. Please check back in the summer for more information.

Note: a $25 registration fee will be charged to anyone who registers for workshops on the day of the event.

Introduction to Experience Builder
Instructor: GeoSpatial Training Services
9 am to 4 pm, Tuesday, October 22, 2024

Registration will open once we have our lineup of workshops finalized.

This course is intended for students who have some knowledge of ArcGIS Online and are looking to expand on their understanding of how to create interactive, online applications. Though it is recommended that students have some experience in developing online map applications, it is not necessary. No scripting skills necessary.

Students need to have their own computer and an ArcGIS Online Creator user type or higher with a valid login. If either requirement is a hardship for you, please contact us to discuss options for borrowing a device.

Cost: $370

Kansas NG911 GIS Data Maintainer

Instructors: Sherry Massey and Will Trimble, Kansas Data Access and Support Center (DASC)
9 am to 12 pm, Tuesday, October 22, 2024

In the Kansas NG911 GIS Program, the Data Maintainer is the person who will be performing the actual maintenance of GIS data for the NG911 Program. Every PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) must have a certified Data Maintainer or have a maintenance contract with a vendor that has a certified Data Maintainer on staff. Those completing this class will be certified as Kansas NG911 Data Maintainers.

Topics to be covered: The role of GIS in NG911; an update on the status of the NG911 program in Kansas; the role of the Data Maintainer and the responsibilities that come with the position; the Kansas NG911 GIS Data Model and its requirements; the tools available to assist in data maintenance; and a discussion of geoMSAG maintenance and the GIS role in telephone record accuracy. During the Behind-the-Scenes of the NG911 Toolbox, we will go in-depth covering the details of certain tools and how they work and how users can leverage the tools to make their data life easier.

Cost: Free. Registration required.
