Making GIS work for the LAFCo layperson

LAFCos are increasingly using ArcGIS as a visualization tool to gain detailed perspective on land use patterns and infrastructure in an effort to limit urban sprawl and conserve resource lands.  GIS technology empowers LAFCo staff with enhanced visibility into data including evaluating project feasibility and their impacts on the environment. This interactive session will cover how to make professional looking maps that can be used in staff reports, presentations etc. using ArcGIS Online.  Note: Workshop participants must bring a laptop for this “how-to” session. Speakers: Greg Bazhaw, GIS Analyst, Santa Clara County Department of Planning & Development and Lakshmi Rajagopalan, Analyst at Santa Clara LAFCo.
