“Tools to Share Your Story” ArcGIS Training Held for 32 Participants

Earlier this year, over 30 community members looking to learn more about the web-based mapping tool ArcGIS Online came together for a day-long “Tools to Share Your Story” training. Through CNNCTS, future trainings like this one are being planned as part of the Climate Science Alliance’s Stewardship Pathways program in partnership with San Diego State University—keep reading to learn more about this inaugural workshop and how to stay updated for future announcements.

The Climate Science Alliance (Alliance) and San Diego State University (SDSU) brought together 32 partners and participants for an ArcGIS Online training titled “Tools to Share Your Story” as part of the Stewardship Pathways program on Saturday, January 27, 2024, on Kumeyaay land at the SDSU campus. This web-based mapping course was developed to support the interests and needs identified in multiple discussions with the Alliance’s Tribal Working Group, who advise the Stewardship Pathways program. 



The day opened up with a blessing from Dr. Stan Rodriguez and a welcome from Jacob Alvarado Waipuk, SDSU Tribal Liaison. Throughout the day, participants engaged with course presenters and fellow attendees to get first-hand experience with robust mapping tools that can help inform drought management, climate change modeling, and native plant management. 


Some of the topics that were covered included: 

  • Setting up an AGOL account

  • Searching for and downloading data

  • Creating data layers manually and with other tools such as Survey123

  • Making maps with that data

  • Sharing data and maps, and especially how to protect data from unauthorized access

We thank the presenters and participants for spending the day with us and contributing to a space of learning and important discussion. In response to the overwhelming interest in this course, planning has begun for future trainings on web-based mapping tools. Thank you to those who signed up for the waiting list—we will be in touch with future opportunities to take this course.






This training was held as part of the Stewardship Pathways program, which invites people from across Southern California interested in creating or expanding a career focused on advancing Indigenous climate stewardship. This training was made possible with support from NOAA and NIDIS as part of the Ecological Drought project, the NASA Equity and Environmental Justice program as part of the Spatial Decision Support Tool project, and SGC as part of the Resilient Restoration project.
