CURSO DE ARCOBJECTS CON ARCGIS Y VISUAL STUDIO

This course will introduce the students in the use of ESRI’s ArcObjects programming framework. Together with Visual Basic for Applications, it allows developers to improve the functionalities of ArcGIS and create more and more sophisticated applications.

ArcObjects is a development environment of ArcGIS suite of software, it is a library of COM, components that build up the foundation of the Esri’s ArcGIS platform. All the ArcGIS for Desktop applications are based on ArcObjects. To start programming in this environment, the best option would be the use of Microsoft Visual Basic programming language.

Enrolled students in this online course will have access to our virtual e-learning platform (which is available 24 hours), where they will find the content of the course, practical exercises, forum discussion and additional content. One of the advantages of this online platform, is that students can benefit of real time support and assistance offered by the instructor (2 hours per week), whom they can contact via direct messages, regarding course related issues, at any moment. They can also contact the instructor via email.

Why starting to 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?

Yes, for undertaking this course you will need previous Geographical Informational Systems training and knowledge.

I do not have ArcGIS 10.x software. What can I do?

ESRI (creators of the ArcGIS program) provides a free trial license for a 2 month. You only need to create an account, download the program and follow the installation steps (see the website). However, we will assist you in any problem you may encounter.

Our online courses, are distributed via Moodle, the world’s most popular learning platform. It is a highly flexible Learning Management System that can be used to conduct and access courses, accomplish tasks of practical exercises, interact face-to-face to the teaching staff or benefit of support and resources at any time.

The online platform can be accessed 24 hours a day, in which the student will be able to ask for help at any given moment. The instructors will act as supervisors during all the training process, offering support for any possible difficulty encountered by the students along the course.
