The new ArcGIS Pro Shorts Series is a series of short, 2 – 4 hour (1/2 day) classes designed with a focus on a specific ArcGIS Pro topic. These classes provide a more focused, deep-dive study into a variety of ArcGIS Pro topics.

Each class in the ArcGIS Pro Shorts Series will be taught in a variety of formats including live-online, classroom, and self-paced online. All classes in this series are designed to be completed in four hours or less. Each of the classes is also available through our Annual GIS Training License and ArcGIS Pro Training Bundle.

This Working with Selection Sets class is being provided as a free self-paced, online class. In this class you’ll learn a variety of techniques for creating selection sets including interactive selection and geoprocessing tools such as Select by Attributes and Select by Location. You’ll also learn how to edit the attributes of selected features, export selected sets to a new layer, and be introduced to a variety of miscellaneous topics for working with selected features.

A selection set in ArcGIS Pro is a filtering of features or rows.  Selection sets can be created using several different methods including interactive selection initiated by drawing a geometry, Select by Attributes tool, and the Select by Location tool.  Selected features will be drawn using a different symbology, which uses a light blue color by default.

I really enjoyed the Python/ArcGIS course. For me the right balance between detail and overview. Good work!

I thought the course was very organized. The style of presentation and the lesson format worked well together. It made the information easy to understand. -

These courses are great. I am so pressed for time this is the only way I can acquire extra skills these days. Thank you Eric for all your hard work!

Chris Hickin, NYC Fire Dept.

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.

Jason Warzinik, Boone County, MO

Really good course material. Very relevant subject matter.

Michael Philp, City of Springville, UT

Definitely got me "over the hump" of being able to grasp Python.

Joseph Monti

Very informative and knowledgeable course. It help determine which direction I should take my further GIS and web programming skills.
