Site Form Workshop
Location: Paleocultural Research Group (PCRG) Lab, 585 Burbank St. Unit A, Broomfield 80020 Dates: February 24, 2018 (10 AM-4 PM, includes lunch) Host: PCRG/ History Colorado To sign up:This class is now full. Contact Chris Johnston if you want to be placed on a wait list.
In this workshop we will cover the basics of the Colorado OAHP Site Form series, including: purpose of the forms, what different fields mean and why they are recorded, how to transfer field data to site forms, how to make site sketch maps by converting GPS data to a GIS (geographic information system), and how to select the most appropriate photos, among other topics. We will be using data collected during the PCRG-PAAC survey completed this past summer in the Rio Grande Natural Area for this workshop. Participants looking to record sites for a PAAC Surveyor Certificate can use this course and the data to jumpstart that process (talk with Chris for more info). There is a class limit of 12 people. Please only sign up if you know you will make it!
