Esri Canada Webinars

What’s New with Imagery in ArcGIS
October 5, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
Whether you need to extract actionable information from satellite imagery or use drone data to support your projects, ArcGIS provides you with the tools and workflows required to accomplish your goals. Join us as we look at the new capabilities available in ArcGIS for integrating and extracting information from imagery. We’ll also explore how you can use parallel processing and distributed computing to process imagery in a fraction of the time traditionally required. 

Making Sense of the Big Data That is Your Road/Street Network
October 17, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
A municipal road network is complex. This webinar will investigate how a spatially and linearly enabled road management system can accommodate operational and service requirements while making road network information accessible to more people in the environment. We will also investigate how spatial business intelligence tools can interpret the data to gain useful and actionable insight into a highly complex road network.

Enterprise Asset Management, Part 3 – System of Insights – Supporting Better Decision Making
October 26, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
An Enterprise Asset Management system is made up of three core components: a system of record, a system of engagement and a system of insight. This webinar will demonstrate how to leverage the numerous streams of data gathered by your organization to predict, plan and manage the lifecycle of any asset.

Considering Community Development in the Third Dimension
November 2, 1-2 pm (ET)
Every aspect of the urban environment exists in three-dimensional space incorporating buildings, roads, bridges, trees, streetlights, topography and other key features. To make effective decisions, planners need a way to understand how these features impact one another in the real world.

Integrated Field Workflows with ArcGIS Mobile Apps
November 30, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
With ArcGIS, you can take your GIS to the field and back. ArcGIS apps for the field run on desktops, the web, smartphones and tablets, so you can be productive no matter where you are or which device you are using. This session will review how ArcGIS apps support specific workflows for all users in your organization to plan, coordinate, run and monitor field operations. You will learn how to deploy apps to meet your data collection needs and how to integrate your field data for effective collaboration with your office GIS users.

Optimizing GIS Workflows with Tasks in ArcGIS Pro
ArcGIS Pro tasks are sets of preconfigured steps that interactively guide users through specific workflows. All types of workflows, from the simple to the complex, can be made into a task. GIS users of all experience levels can use that task to complete the workflow easily and repeat when necessary. In this course, you will use a task created for you, learn how to design and create your own tasks, share a task for others to use and discover best practices to simplify and optimize your GIS workflows with tasks.

ArcGIS Pro: Essential Workflows
Extend your foundational GIS knowledge, get comfortable with the ArcGIS Pro application and explore some of the most common GIS workflows. This course introduces techniques and general best practices to map, manage, analyze and share data and other GIS resources. Hands-on exercises will give you the experience needed to efficiently work with ArcGIS Pro.

Migrating from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro
ArcGIS Pro helps GIS professionals complete their projects and share their results more quickly and easily than ever before. With its modern interface and integrated 2D and 3D capabilities, ArcGIS Pro will streamline the way you do your GIS work. This course introduces the essential ArcGIS Pro terminology you need to understand and prepares you to be productive right away. You will learn how to efficiently complete a variety of tasks related to mapping, editing, analyzing and sharing data, maps and other geospatial resources.
