For students wanting to learn how to use ESRI ArcGIS software, you may register for ENVA 460 GIS: Environmental Applications. For faculty and staff wanting to learn how to use ArcGIS software, please contact Dr. Meierdiercks about the next workshop. For faculty wanting to integrate GIS into their research, you may also want to consider having your student research assistant register for ENVA 460. If are a member of the Siena community who already knows how to use ArcGIS, but needs assistance or has questions about the software or generating a map, you may ask a student worker for help during regular office hours.

Have a course or research project involving mapping or geospatial analysis that you would like a GIS student to help you with? Consider submitting it as a potentional ENVA 460 course project. Click here for more information.
