Curso Online Especialista en ArcGIS 10 aplicado a la Geología y Minería

This course will teach students how to use the functionalities of ArcGIS Desktop 10.x (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolBox) in geology and mining activities. They will learn how to create geologic and geomorphological environmental projects centered on mining activities using vector and raster data models and spatial analysis.

By the end of the course, they will be able to create high-quality maps and perform spatial multi-criteria analysis for mining activity management.

Students who register for this online course will have access to our virtual e-learning platform (which is available 24 hours). Here, they will find the course content, the practical and evaluation exercises, the forum discussion, and much more. One of the benefits of this course is that students can receive real-time support and assistance from the instructor whenever needed. The support for course-related issues is provided via direct messages and forum discussions on the platform, as well as via email or online meetings.

Why study Arcgis 10.x?

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are becoming an indispensable tool in a wide range of business sectors, including engineering, environment, geography, mining, and geomarketing.

Among GIS products, ArcGIS is one of the most widely used, stable, and versatile, consisting of a set of integrated applications with solid documentation covering a wide range of functionalities. It is also supported by a large community.

ArcGIS provides contextual tools for data visualization, mapping, and spatial analysis, as well as complex capabilities for exploring, gaining, and enquiring knowledge to make the best decisions. It can also be handled via a user interface as well as the command line, if specific programming languages such as Python are used.

Do I need previous knowledge in ArcGis 10.x?

No, the course starts from the very beginning.

I don’t have the ArcGIs 10. X program. What can I do?

Due to changes in the ESRI licensing policy, the 60-day trial version of ArcGIS – ArcMap is no longer available. With the new ArcGIS for Personal Use option, you can gain access to the full capabilities of the ArcGIS platform. Check the next LINK. 

Moodle, the world’s most popular learning platform, is used to deliver our online courses. It is a highly adaptable Learning Management System that can be used to conduct and access courses, complete practical exercise tasks, interact with teaching staff in person, or benefit from support and resources at any time.

The online platform is available 24 hours a day, and the student can request assistance at any time. The instructors will serve as supervisors throughout the training process, assisting students with any difficulties they may encounter along the way.

The course is divided into modules, making it simple for students to find training material, download information, complete practical exercises, and take assessments to validate their newly acquired skills. The instructors will assist students throughout the course, providing progressive help and information based on their progress.
