USING PYTHON WITH ARCGIS (BEGINNER LEVEL)

ONLINE TRAINING

START DATE: AVAILABLE SOON (80 hours)

PRICE: 250 € (Standard fee) | 225 € (Student / Unemployed fee)

Curso Online de Python en ArcGIS

The course is focused on the initiation of students in the use of Python programming language along with ArcGIS Desktop collection software on: process and tasks automation, vector and raster analysis, map generation and publication, geoprocessing model creation, etc.

The purpose of this course is to transmit to the student information about creating and editing spatial data using Python programming language, a command line software application which can be directly applied when creating complex stand-alone Python scripts or Python script tools. Use Python to power up your GIS needs, automate your workflows and take advantages of all ArcGIS platform capabilities.

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 should we learn Python programming language and Geographical Informational Systems?

Geographic Informational Systems (GIS) are rapidly spreading and becoming an essential tool in many work fields including, engineering, environment, geography, geology and mining, emerging sciences, geomarketing.  Programming in the GIS software environment became a essential skill and a critical requirement for most geospatial jobs opportunities. Nowadays, the majority of GIS jobs require some programming capabilities or application development.

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.

The course is structured in different modules, making it easy for the student to search for training material, download information, complete practical exercises and take assessments in order to verify their new gained abilities. The instructors will assist the students throughout all the course period, offering progressive help and information according to their evolution.
