Training

Training image

Rothwell offers training to ensure that both new and existing PaleoGIS users are equipped to take full advantage of the product’s plate tectonics reconstruction functionality. Users can choose between two types of standard workshops or collaborate with Rothwell in designing custom training.

Standard Workshops

PaleoGIS Core

Format: One-day, face-to-face instruction, limited to 10 participants
Prerequisite: ArcMap proficiency

The PaleoGIS Core workshop introduces plate tectonics and reconstruction modeling. Instruction covers basic PaleoGIS functionality in a hands-on workshop setting. Participants learn how to operate the software and perform all core functions.

Learning activities
  1. Brief introduction to tectonic plate models
  2. PaleoGIS basics
    • Activating the PaleoGIS extension and toolbars, licensing, etc.
    • Function of the local cache and scratch directory in PaleoGIS workflows
  3. Performing reconstructions
    • Vector and raster reconstructions
    • Saving reconstructions and exporting to ArcGlobe
  4. Using the un-reconstruct function
  5. Creating and saving animations
  6. Creating and integrating time-dependent data
  7. PaleoGIS Analysis Tools
    • Instantaneous Motion
    • Point Path Visualization
    • Azimuth
    • Rate vs. Time

PaleoGIS Plate Model Editing

Format: One-day, face-to-face instruction, limited to 10 participants
Prerequisites: ArcMap and PaleoGIS proficiency

The PaleoGIS Plate Model Editing workshop is an advanced course for users who want to fine-tune existing plate models for specific workflows or geographic locations. Participants learn how to perform editing techniques through hands-on practice, with goals of addressing specific analysis challenges.

Learning activities
  1. Plate model fundamentals: Feature class requirements, model structure, contents, etc.
  2. Basic plate model modifications:
    • Adding display layers
    • Saving layer symbology to the plate model geodatabase
    • Changing the default projection
  3. Introduction to poles of rotation: Euler poles
  4. Editing/adding plates and poles of rotation to a model
  5. Adding plate deformation
