Curso Online Especialista en ArcGIS 10 aplicado al Medio Ambiente

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

Students will gain knowledge in the usage of ArcGIS 10.x software with application in environmental studies (environmental impact studies, environmental documents, fauna studies, etc.). They will master the creation of high quality maps, spatial multi-criteria analysis for environmental management, project alternative studies, as well as how to perform least impact routing analysis.

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 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, this 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.
