The Utah Rural School Association (URSA) hosted the URSA Summer Workshop for K-12 teachers in Utah on July 6 – 10, 2015 at the Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah. The Utah Geographic Information Council (UGIC) and UtahView spent two days teaching teachers the basics of geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), Esri StoryMaps, and Google Tours.

You can download the Garmin GPS Exercise which starts with the basics of using Garmin GPSMAP 64 units (also good for 60Cx and 62 models) here.

Dr. Phoebe McNeally, Director of the University of Utah DIGIT Lab, and Chris McGinty, Associate Director of the Utah State University Remote Sensing/GIS Laboratory, provided four hours of instruction, plus a short sUAS flight demonstration to the teachers.
