Where to Do the Exercises

The first step to complete the exercises in this tutorial is to set up the computer you will be working on. If you completed our Getting Started Course, your system and datasets are ready to go through this learning guide. You will be able to use our GeoAgro GIS trial version for 2 months. From now on, you are ready to begin with any learning guide you wish.

Exercise 01 – Download plan data from Workgroups

In this exercise you will learn to download to your computer plan data uploaded by the NRCS or MFS. First, you will log in the GeoAgro Workgroups database. Then, you will import your plan project from Workgroups into GIS and download the required layers.

Exercise 02 – Review the plan data

In this exercise you will learn how to review the plan data you just downloaded. First, you will check the data created by the stewardship forester and review any changes there might have been. Then, you will check out the layers for offline editing. Finally, you edit attributes and upload the changes.
