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.
