All GIS professionals have routine geoprocessing tasks that must be completed on an on-going basis. Some of these tasks must be completed daily, weekly, monthly, or periodically on an on-going basis. In many cases these geoprocessing tasks can be automated or semi-automated. ArcGIS Pro includes three methods for automation including ModelBuilder, Python, and the new Task Framework.
Many on-going geoprocessing routines require that a lengthy series of steps be completed in a very specific order. Often, GIS users complete these geoprocessing routines from memory or perhaps they’ve documented the steps required to complete the process. The ArcGIS Pro Task framework forces rigor into the process by allowing you to design and build tasks to successfully guide the end user in the completion of geoprocessing routines.
Tasks are ideal for automation of geoprocessing routines in the following situations:
• Less experienced users who need to complete geoprocessing tasks
• A specific set of steps must be followed in order without deviation
• Geoprocessing tasks that require some user interaction
• When you need to document a process that isn’t done frequently
In this course you will learn how to use ArcGIS Pro to automate geoprocessing tasks.
