Course Description 
ArcGIS I: Introduction to GIS

Course duration - 12~16 hours.


This course teaches what a GIS is and what you can do with it. Working with various components of the ArcGIS system, you will create GIS maps, explore and analyze the data behind the maps, and apply methods to easily share your maps. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of how GIS maps and ArcGIS tools are used to visualize real-world features, discover patterns, obtain information, and communicate that information to others.

Who Should Attend
Individuals who do not have any prior GIS education or workplace experience with GIS.

After completing this course, you will be able to: 
  • Quickly create and share a GIS map using ArcGIS web-based tools and content.
  • Find and organize geographic data and other GIS resources for a mapping project.
  • Accurately display features on a GIS map and efficiently access information about them.
  • Analyze a GIS map to identify where features that meet specific criteria are located.
  • Share GIS maps and analysis results so they can be viewed using desktop applications, websites, and mobile devices. 
Course Description
ArcGIS Desktop II: Tools and Functionality

Course duration  – 20 hours.

This course introduces the fundamental concepts of ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 software and teaches how to use it to visualize, create, manage, and analyze geographic data. In course exercises, you will use ArcGIS tools to fficiently perform common GIS tasks and workflows. By the end of the course, you will understand the range of ArcGIS Desktop functionality and be prepared to work with the software on your own to create GIS maps, work with geographic data, and perform GIS analysis.

Who Should Attend
GIS professionals and others who have GIS knowledge but no ArcGIS software experience.

After completing this course, you will be able to: 
  • Create a file geodatabase to store and manage geographic data. 
  • Create and edit geographic data to accurately represent realworld objects. 
  • Explore geographic data in ArcMap. 
  • Classify, symbolize, and label map features to improve map visualization and interpretation. 
  • Query and analyze GIS data to support decision making. 
  • Create maps to share with others.
