Overview: This mini-course will introduce participants to array programming and math functions within Python's NumPy module.
NumPy implements efficient multi-dimensional arrays for Python. The mini-course will present elements and features of NumPy and how it can be used in numerical applications. The course includes hands-on exercises so participants can become familiar with programming techniques. We will use the workstations in the New Media Center. Emphasis will be on getting started with NumPy and understanding its fundamentals so attendees can continue on their own. The course is intended for researchers working with data generated by simulations or acquired from experiments and other studies.
Experience with Python Lists, Tuples, and the Math module is strongly recommended background for the session.
Space is limited to 25 participants, so register today at the Training website, http://www.princeton.edu/training or contact Andrea Rubinstein at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 258-1397.

ArcGIS 10.2 has many tools to classify satellite images and air photos into land use and land cover categories. This session will introduce the Image Analysis window and the Image Classification toolbar, and work with Landsat images of New Jersey to conduct a supervised land use/land cover classification.

Maps can be extremely effective in communicating knowledge about an area. ArcGIS ArcMap has a variety of tools and techniques to design maps. Hands-on exercises will show how to use map-making tools within the software, and introduce common cartographic techniques. The session will discuss how to design maps for a variety of presentation formats.

GIS users often want to run a process multiple times, changing the inputs, parameters or summaries generated. ArcGIS has many ways to help users automate processes. The exercises show users how to use graphic tools in ModelBuilder, how to run models iteratively, and how to export models to Python scripts.
