BAE Systems has augmented its software training program. New SOCET SET® and SOCET GXP® training classes are scheduled to begin in January 2010 at nationwide training centers.
All scheduled SOCET SET and SOCET GXP training courses held in GXP regional training centers are free for current and prospective customers. Classroom seating is limited, so please register online in advance to reserve a space. We regret that we cannot accept walk-in registrations.
A preview of new courses is listed below. Complete syllabi and the training calendar are listed online: http://www.socetgxp.com/content/events/training-courses
The hands-on SOCET SET course provides an overview of the user interface, core functionality, and geospatial production processes. Students are taught how to create a SOCET SET project; import images (from various sensor types), terrain files, shapefiles, and other data into the project; and use the data to create a range of geospatial products.
After completing the course, students should be able to use automated image-analysis and geospatial production tools to generate orthophotos, true orthophotos, image chips and mosaics; create terrain models; and extract features from stereo imagery. Skills taught in the four-day course include triangulating images to improve geospatial accuracy, creating and editing terrain files, and updating geodatabases with 2-D and 3-D features.
SOCET for ArcGIS® for SOCET SET
The SOCET for ArcGIS® for SOCET SET course is designed for GGI contractors. However, it is helpful for anyone who uses SOCET for ArcGIS in the SOCET SET environment. The four-day hands-on course teaches those familiar with ESRI® products how to use stereo imagery to collect and edit features, and assign attributes in the ArcMap® environment. Students are taught how to extract 2-D and 3-D feature data using the SOCET SET stereo viewport. The data is automatically placed in an ESRI personal, multi-user, or file geodatabase. Additional skills taught include connecting to geodatabases, optimizing preferences, proper extracting methods, feature attribution and editing, and data quality assurance and quality control.
SOCET GXP: Train the trainer
The four-day SOCET GXP: Train the trainer course is designed for individuals who need a comprehensive understanding of the software so they can teach others. The hands-on course covers software installation, system administration, licensing, and all core functionality and tools for multiple user types.
After completing the four-day course, students should be able to: install SOCET GXP and set up the License Manager to allocate license modules, configure site and user-defined preferences, become proficient with all tools and workflows, gain a basic understanding of troubleshooting techniques including areas that may require concentrated training, and learn tips and tricks to help users streamline workflows.
SOCET GXP for the geospatial analyst
The SOCET GXP for the geospatial analyst course teaches students how to optimize geospatial production processes. The hands-on three-day course includes steps for streamlining rigorous analysis and production tasks to optimize workflows.
Upon completion of the course, students should be able to use automated exploitation, analysis, and geospatial production tools to generate image and map products such as orthophotos, true orthophotos, image chips, mosaics, and pan-sharpened images. Skills taught include triangulating images to improve geospatial accuracy, creating and editing terrain files, and updating geodatabases with 2-D and 3-D features.
SOCET GXP for the image analyst
The SOCET GXP for the image analyst course offers instruction and hands-on training for core SOCET GXP tools. Learn about the basic SOCET GXP operating environment, typical workflows, terminology, and the fundamental concepts required to quickly create accurate image and map products using geospatially registered data.
After completing the two-day course, students should be familiar with the software interface and menus; recognize frequently used tools; and master the basic navigation required to build finished products — complete with graphics, annotations, targets, shapefiles, and other relevant data. Other skills taught include change detection, image comparison, and generating user-defined templates.
