MaDGIC Upcoming Events


The Maps, Data & Government  Information Centre offers a range of workshops each term. These include workshops geared to specific courses, and workshops geared to promoting data visualization skills using a range of software found in the Data Visualization Lab.

Fall Term Workshops on ArcGIS Pro GIS Software

ArcGIS Pro is the latest desktop geographic information systems (GIS) software offered by Esri. The software is available to all registered members of Trent University for academic use, and will eventually replace Esri’s ArcMap software.

We invite all Trent students, faculty and staff to register for a free introductory workshop on mapping and data visualization using Esri's ArcGIS Pro software.



Poster for MaDGIC GIS Pro Instruction Sessions. Exact text for poster immediately follows.

The goal of this session is to teach users how to make a map layout in ArcGIS Pro software. Participants will learn how to perform the following mapping skills: import tabular XY data to a GIS, import spatial data to a geodatabase, apply symbology to data, create and digitize a feature class, edit an attribute table, label features, create a map layout with multiple map frames, and add and format map surrounds (e.g. legends and inset maps).

There is no prerequisite for this workshop. We encourage new GIS users to register and people who are familiar with ArcMap but would like to learn the ArcGIS Pro interface and terminology.
