Using Spatial Analyst in ArcGIS

Introduction

This course introduces participants to the Spatial Analyst extension by working through several projects.  The first project illustrates basic raster functionality by locating the best site for a solar installation.  The second project demonstrates more advanced analysis and validation by determining fire hazard zones.  A third project explores the process of analyzing water tables and the impact of irrigation, providing an opportunity to look at the Hydrology sample provided for ArcGIS.  The final projects combine the skills learned in earlier projects to locate sites for elephant conservation zones in Kenya and to do cost path analysis to find the shortest path between an elephant herd and a reserve area. Students will also learn the basics of ModelBuilder and will use this for some of the projects.

"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 ...
