Advanced ArcGIS Programming with Python is an intermediate/advanced level programming course for ArcGIS Desktop.
ArcGIS Desktop is the leading desktop solution for GIS analysis and mapping. The ArcPy site package, which contains the ArcPy Mapping and Data Access modules, enables Python programmers to access all the GIS functionality provided through ArcGIS Desktop. ArcPy can be integrated with other open source Python libraries to enhance GUI development, create stunning reports, charts, and graphs, access REST web services, perform statistical analysis, and more. This course will teach you how to take your ArcGIS Desktop application development skills to the next level by integrating the functionality provided by ArcPy with open source Python libraries to create advanced ArcGIS Desktop applications.
This course starts by providing detailed descriptions and examples of how to create ArcGIS Desktop Python toolboxes that will serve as containers for many of the applications that you will build. You’ll then learn how to build tools that can access data from ArcGIS Server using the ArcGIS REST API, integrate additional open source Python libraries into your applications for charting and graphing, advanced GUI development, reading and writing json, csv, and xml format data sources, writing output to Google Earth Pro and more. Along the way, you’ll also learn advanced ArcPy Mapping and ArcPy Data Access module techniques, use Data Driven Pages to automate the creation of map books, access services provided by ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online, and much more. Later modules will teach you some advanced techniques for working with video, social media feeds, and integrating GIS data with Esri Story Maps and ArcGIS Online.

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.
Our live-online classes are conducted from 9:30 – 5:00 each day. Classes are delivered via GoToTraining. You will receive an email containing login instructions for the GoToTraining session on the Wednesday before class begins.
You can also register for classes using our registration form.
