Introduction to ArcGIS II: Editing and Analysis


This 3 day course builds on the skills learned in the Introduction to ArcGIS I course. It teaches the range of analysis & editing functionality available in the ArcGIS desktop. This hands-on course uses exercises to emphasize practice with ArcMap and ArcCatalog (the primary applications included with ArcGIS Desktop software) to perform common GIS tasks & workflows. The tools for creating & managing geographic data, displaying data on maps in different ways, and analyzing data to discover patterns revealing relationships are highlighted.

Target Audience:
This course is for those that have some limited knowledge of GIS and experience using ArcGIS that wish to learn more about using ArcGIS for Desktop to create, edit, manage and analyze GIS data.

Our instructor guided, online classes are conducted through our online training platform.  All lectures are pre-recorded so that you can progress through the materials at your own pace.  The same applies to the exercises.  You will have access to the instructor via email, phone, or chat if you have questions or problems.  The instructor will be in weekly contact with the students in each class session.  Our goal is to get everyone through the materials during the session dates. However, access to the course materials never expires so if you don’t finish during the session dates you will still have access to the materials.

"I have attended a number of instructor lead  training courses offered by ESRI, which are great in their own right, but the Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API course gets much more in-depth than they often do.  I really liked the recommended reading, they helped expand the terms being covered in lecture to concrete examples that could be related back to my work more directly instead of just having the lecture and exercises alone.  I learned a lot andwill recommend this and other GeoSpatial Training courses to the GIS'ers I know. Thanks for putting this course together and offering it ...
