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

This course will qualify students in ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and in particular in ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcTool Box. They will learn how to apply advanced techniques (vector and raster data models and analysis) in the development of geologic and geomorphological environmental projects that focuses on mining activities.

Students will gain knowledge in the usage of ArcGIS 10.x software with application in geology and mining planning activities (environmental impact studies, environmental documents, mineral deposits estimation). They will master the creation of high quality maps, spatial multi-criteria analysis for mining activities management.

Studying the online course, students will have access to our virtual learning platform (available 24 hours) where they will find the course contents, exercises, discussion forums and additional content. In this plaftorm, students are provided with real time support from the instructor (2 hours per week) whom they can contact via direct messages to solve doubts at any moment.

Why study Arcgis 10.x?

The usage of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is rapidly growing, becoming an essential tool in a variety of business sectors like engineering, environment, geography, mining or geomarketing.

Among GIS tools, ArcGIS is one of the most used GIS software worldwide, the most stable and versatile, comprised by a set of integrated applications, with a solid documentation over a wide range of tools being also supported by a large community.

ArcGIS provides contextual tools for data visualization, mapping and spatial analysis, connecting and combining information from varied sources (local and online), offering complex capabilities in order to explore, gain and enquire knowledge, that will lead to the best decisions. It can be also handled using a user interface as well as in command line using specific programming languages, like Python.

Do I need previous knowledge in ArcGis 10.x?

No, the training 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 trial version of 60 days for ArcGIS – ArcMap it is not available anymore. You can get access to the full capabilities of ArcGIS platform with the new ArcGIS for Personal Use option available at the following link.

The online format uses the online learning and technological platform Moodle, a telematics tool that works through the internet. It is a learning platform that provides students access to the training course content, fulfill the practical cases and consult the teaching staff, as well as availability to the resources and help at any moment.

The platform is available 24 hours a day, through which the student will be able to ask for help at any given moment. Instructors will reinforce the student´s autonomy during its training process, supporting and clarifying any possible doubts that may arise along the course.

Therefore, the course is carried out through different areas available on the online platform and where the student can search for training material, download information, complete the practical exercises and take assessments to verify the assimilated knowledge. Teachers will offer progressively the basic information needed to work towards the completion of a final practical case.
