Introduction to Programming ArcGIS Pro with Python

This 2-day beginner course will teach students how to automate geoprocessing tasks in ArcGIS Pro using the Python programming language.

We’ll start with an overview of the basic programming constructs of Python version 3.4.  You’ll learn how to create variables, assign data to variables, work with lists, dictionary, and tuples, branch your code with if/else, for, and while statements, work with classes and objects, and other fundamentals.

Next, in Module 2, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the Arcpy core library along with several sub-modules including the Mapping and Data Access modules.  You’ll learn also learn the basic classes and functions from the Arcpy core library.

In Module 3 you’ll learn how to handle error and exceptions in your code.  Using the Python try/except code block along with error messages that are generated in ArcPy you’ll understand how to gracefully trap and recover from the inevitable errors in your code.

Modules 4 through 7 cover the Arcpy Mapping module in exhaustive details.  In Module 4 you’ll learn how to write geoprocessing scripts that manage your projects as well as the maps, layers, and tables that are part of your projects.  You’ll learn how to programmatically add and remove layers from a map, update symbology and properties of layers, and much more including working with the new Camera and Bookmark classes.  In Module 5 you’ll learn how to work with layouts.  In ArcGIS Pro you can have multiple layout views, so you’ll learn how to manage these objects, make programmatic changes to the elements in the layouts, and export or print the layouts.  Module 6 covers the automation of map production and printing including the use of map books.  Finally, in Module 7 you’ll discover how to find and fix broken data links in your ArcGIS Pro project files.

Topics Covered:

  1. Introduction to the Python Programming Language
  2. Introduction to Using Arcpy in ArcGIS Pro

 Intermediate ArcGIS Pro Programming with Python

In our Intermediate ArcGIS Pro Programming with Python course you will learn intermediate level Python skills with ArcGIS Pro to automate your geoprocessing tasks.

In Module 1, you’ll learn how to perform attribute and spatial queries to select features from feature classes and tables.  We’ll cover the proper construction of attribute queries, and the use of the Select By Location and Select by Attributes tools.

In Module 2 we’ll cover the Arcpy Data Access module which allows you to insert, update, and delete data from feature classes and tables.  In addition, this module also allows for the creation of edit sessions, examination of domains and versions, and creating a read only view of data.  You’ll also learn how to use the Describe function to get descriptive information about GIS datasets.

In the final module of the course we’ll examine the creation of custom ArcGIS geoprocessing script tools through the use of Python Toolboxes and custom ArcGIS Toolboxes.

 Getting Started with ArcGIS Arcade

Arcade is a response to a common problem. How do you display data when there is no column in the schema containing that data? Up until now, if the map layer you are working with did not have exactly the right attribute data you need, you had two choices: alter the underlying data or bring in the services of an application developer.

ArcGIS Arcade is an expression language with a simple scripting syntax that enables you to manipulate your existing data to generate new information based on it. While this sort of functionality has always been available in certain Esri products – most notably ArcGIS Desktop – the aim behind Arcade is to make it available everywhere in the ArcGIS platform, and for it to work identically in all environments.

You can almost think of Arcade as “Excel for ArcGIS”. In much the same way as Excel lets you write formula to work with spreadsheet data, Arcade lets you do the same with map data. In the initial release of Arcade, you can create and reference geometries. In future releases, other geometry functions may be added allowing you to calculate areas and lengths, and perform simple overlay operations in more complex expressions.

Topics Covered:

  1. Module 1: Introduction to ArcGIS Arcade
  2. Module 2: Writing Your First Expression
  3. Module 3: The Arcade Expression Language: Structure
  4. Module 4: The Arcade Expression Language: Data Types

Geoprocessing Automation in ArcGIS Pro with Tasks

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.

Topics Covered:

  1. Module 1: Introduction to Tasks
  2. Module 2: Running a Task
  3. Module 3: Creating a Task
  4. Module 4: Task Configuration
  5. Module 5: Capstone Exercises

Intended Audience
This course is intended for intermediate level ArcGIS Pro users seeking to gain additional skills with the ArcGIS Task framework for automation and semi-automation of geoprocessing tasks.

Prerequisites and requirements
Students should already have intermediate level ArcGIS Pro experience.

Course Materials:
Each student will receive the following:

  1. PDF copies of lecture slides
  2. Students must also purchase the exercise book that goes with this class separately
  3. Certificate of Completion
