This two day course is designed for intermediate to advanced GIS users to explore advanced ArcGIS techniques for management and analysis of fisheries and fish habitat data. The course will begin with an introduction of the High Resolution (1:24,000-scale resolution) National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). Participants will then learn the application of the ArcToolbox Linear Referencing and ArcHydro Tools for analysis of fisheries data using High Resolution NHD. Course time will be available for participants to have the valuable experience of building some simple fish habitat suitability models using ArcGIS Model Builder and ArcPy (Python for ArcGIS) scripting language to run Linear Referencing and ArcHydro tools.

After completing this course students will be able to:
· Make full use of the High Resolution National Hydrography Dataset for fisheries and fish habitat data analysis.
· Use ArcToolbox Linear Referencing Tools for fisheries and fish habitat data analysis.
· Use ArcHydro Tools for fisheries and fish habitat data analysis.
· Use ArcGIS Model Buidler and ArcPy (Python for ArcGIS) scripting language to create fish habitat suitability models.
This hands-on course is intended for fish, wildlife, hydrology, environmental and natural resource GIS professionals involved in the collection, interpretation, and presentation of spatial data related to the ecology of the freshwater river and nearshore estuarine environments.
