FORMATIONS 2014: Mapping the City
We are pleased to announce FORMATIONS 2014, a series of software based workshops for students and professionals taking place on Feb 8th at CCA in San Francisco. FORMATIONS, an annual workshop series at the California College of the Arts, provides a platform for students and professionals in the design disciplines to explore new technologies in a hands-on workshop setting.  Two workshops will be held which offer different ways of understanding and mapping the city. Software taught includes: ArcGIS, Spatial Analyst, Local Code, InfraWorks.   Eligibility: The workshops are open to all students and professionals in the design fields.

Workshop 1: InfraWorks: 3D City Information Modeling
Instructor: G. Aparicio

As more people move to cities, it is becoming increasingly challenging to design infrastructures that efficiently support the many changing needs of its inhabitants. Urban areas are growing in size and complexity. Over half the world's population now live in an urban area, and 75% will call a city home by 2050. InfraWorks allows you to accelerate the design and decision making process by rapidly generating datarich 3d city information models to better predict how design alternatives may perform and more efficiently support the many changing needs of a cities inhabitants and other stakeholders. Through this workshop participants will learn how to create a 3d city model using provided datasets, run a shadow analysis and host their model on Infraworks 360 cloudbased solution for effective collaboration.

Workshop 2: The City Denuded: Spatial Analysis with GIS
Instructor: J. Bamberger

GIS gives data meaning through place. It allows us to observe how neighborhoods and cities function. If buildings and infrastructure are the hardware, GIS and geospatial data reveal the software. It exposes the exchanges that take place in cities across social, political, economic, and spatial realms. This workshop will provide participants with the tools to perform complex spatial analysis and produce coherent graphic 2D and 3D maps. The morning session will be a crash course in the user interface and functionality of GIS. This will be hands-on, and no prior experience is required:

   -Data types and download resources
   -Data layers in GIS and graphic interface
   -Brief discussion of projection systems
   -Building a map
   -Data analysis
   -Joining data

The afternoon session will focus on 3D visualization and spatial analysis. Participants will take the maps from the morning and develop analysis overlays using built-in toolboxes from Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, and ArcScene. We will also briefly overview ModelBuilder which allows users to create customizable workflows including custom built scripts and analysis.
