Training

Optimizing GIS Workflows with Tasks in ArcGIS Pro
ArcGIS Pro tasks are sets of preconfigured steps that interactively guide users through specific workflows. GIS users of all experience levels can use tasks 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 workflows.

ArcGIS 3: Performing Analysis
Learn a standard workflow you can apply to any spatial analysis project. You will perform different types of analyses to efficiently create reliable results that support informed decision-making. This course uses ArcGIS Desktop Advanced (ArcMap) and some exercises use tools in the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension.

Create Informative Maps with Excel Spreadsheets
ArcGIS Maps for Office gives you the ability to view your information spatially while working in Excel. By viewing your data on a map, you can quickly see patterns, make comparisons and understand the spatial dimensions of your business activity. You can then share your results with colleagues, clients and others.
