Creating Effective Web Applications Using ArcGIS Server - $750 (12 seats)

This course teaches basic design principles for creating Web mapping applications that are attractive, fast, and easy to use by their intended audience. In course exercises, you will work with the lightweight ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs to create a focused application that utilizes internal and external ArcGIS Server Web services. Students may choose to complete some course exercises using the ArcGIS API for Flex, the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, or the ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF.  GIS analysts and others who want to create Web mapping applications to extend the use of GIS data to non-GIS departments within an organization or to the general public via the Internet. No Web development experience is required.

•·        After completing this course you will be able to

•·        Choose an application development environment that meets your needs.

•·        Author high-performing basemap and operational layers for a map service.

•·        Design an application for efficient querying and editing.

•·        Build an application that includes geoprocessing functionality.

•·        Configure ESRI templates and out-of-the-box viewers to quickly build a Web application.



What’s New in ArcGIS Desktop 10 - $750 (12 seats)

ArcGIS 10 is a major release that introduces powerful new tools and simplified workflows designed to increase your productivity and help you get better results from your GIS. Significant interface improvements and tighter integration of ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and Python scripting make data visualization, analysis, and map production faster and easier. In this course, you will explore the major enhancements included in ArcGIS 10. Course exercises provide hands-on practice with many of the new tools and workflows for mapping, editing, analyzing, and documenting your GIS data.

GIS analysts, managers, data technicians, specialists, and other experienced ArcGIS Desktop users who need to learn the new features and workflows of ArcGIS 10.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

•·        Understand the major changes in ArcGIS 10.

•·        Quickly access data, maps, and geoprocessing tools in ArcMap using the Catalog window and Search window.

•·        Apply the new streamlined sketch-based editing workflow to create and edit feature geometry and attributes.

•·        Create attractive, professional-quality maps using basemaps, operational layers, and new styles and symbols.

•·        Work with time-aware and 3D data on a map.

•·        Use Python scripts in ArcMap to automate common geoprocessing tasks.

•·        Quickly produce a map series using data-driven pages.





Introduction to ModelBuilder Workshop - $125 (12 seats)

What is geoprocessing (ModelBuilder)?  ESRI describes it as “A GIS operation used to manipulate GIS data. A typical geoprocessing operation takes an input dataset, performs an operation on that dataset, and returns the result of the operation as an output dataset. Common geoprocessing operations include geographic feature overlay, feature selection and analysis, topology processing, raster processing, and data conversion. Geoprocessing allows for definition, management, and analysis of information used to form decisions. – ESRI

Model builder allows you to customize a geoprocess by modeling the process in a toolbox application.   “A geoprocess model chains together a sequence of geoprocessing tools to preserve a set of tasks or to define a complex geographic information system (GIS) workflow. ModelBuilder allows you to build geoprocessing models by using the output of one tool as the input to another tool and chaining them together. The model you create is added to ArcToolbox as a model tool. You can execute this tool using its dialog box or the command line window. To chain together custom geoprocessing tools in ModelBuilder, the custom tool must update its output parameter description. – ESRI”      

The class will cover:

  • Using Geoprocesses (Data Preparation & Analysis)
  • Models vs. Scripts (Models & Scripts)
  • ArcToolbox
  • Tool Characteristics (Management, Execution & Monitoring)
  • Model Elements (Tools, Project data (existing data), Derived data (output from tools within the model), Values (input values) & Derived values)
  • Documentation (Why document your work & Methods for documentation)



Introduction to ArcPad – ArcPad 10 Edition - $125 (10 seats)

Intro to ArcPad is a beginner’s level workshop that teaches the fundamental use of the ArcPad toolbar which will enable anyone to perform a GPS field collection.  The workshop will begin with a overview of Windows Mobile and ActiveSync, how satellites communicate with GPS units, Trimble SSF file formats, correct ArcPad settings for a GPS unit and a review of basic shapefile structure.

Class participants will gain an understanding of the ArcPad toolbar by performing a simulated GPS exercise on a PC. In this simulated exercise, participants will be instructed on basic toolbar functions to carry out GPS collection; such as, adding data, the use and purpose of the GPS Position Window, how to turn layers on and off using the Table of Contents, Zoom in and Zoom out tools and the Identify tool.  The simulated exercise also will instruct participants on best practices to take point, line and polygon GPS data.  Once class participants have completed the simulated GPS exercise, they will perform a brief outside GPS field exercise. In this exercise, they will create their own shapefile dataset, go out collect data, and return back to the classroom to differentially correct their dataset and place that dataset on a map.ArcPad is ESRI’s ®  Mobile GIS software (Designed for collection of GPS Data). The key features of ArcPad are:

  • Uses existing GIS data (vector & raster) and Integrates with total GIS system.
  • Capture data in field using GPS, pen sketching, cameras, laser range finders, etc.
  • Navigate (browse) around map.
  • Query Data
  • Measure Distances (distance, direction, area).
  • Navigate using GPS.
  • Customizable.

Class instruction will cover:

  • Open a map in ArcPad and add layers to it.
  • Change layer symbology.
  • Edit feature attributes.
  • Create a new shapefile in ArcPad.
  • Digitize features in ArcPad.
  • Add attribute data for new features.
  • Overview of ArcPad Toolbars and Settings.
  • Creating a “Quickform” edit form for the shapefile.
  • Understanding and working with the “GPS Status Box”.
  • Activating and Using Track log.
  • Collection of points, lines and polygons using GPS.
  • Collecting offset positions.
  • Updating attributes/geography for existing features.
  • Measuring distance and area.





Building & Deploying Add-Ins for ArcGIS Desktop - $25 (20 seats)

New with ArcGIS 10, desktop add-ins provide an easier means for building and sharing customizations that extend desktop applications. The add-in programming model provides developers with a declaration-based framework for creating a collection of customizations conveniently packaged within a single compressed file.  Add-ins are easily shared between users and don't require installation programs or COM registration. Add-ins can also be made available over network shares, making it easier to synchronize updates within an organization. Find out about add-ins from the .NET developer’s perspective and discuss coding patterns, distribution options, and debugging.


ArcGIS 10 & Imagery - $25 (20 seats)

ArcGIS 10 introduces improved access to imagery for all desktop users.  This technical session will cover in depth discussion and demonstration of enhanced imagery capabilities such as:

•·        Better tools for managing imagery on the desktop and server

•·        Faster performance with accelerated image display

•·        The new Image Analysis Window in ArcMap

•·        Dynamic mosaicking and on-the-fly processing

•·        Serving dynamic image mosaics
