Curso Online de ArcGIS 10.x - Nivel Usuario online

This course will qualify students in ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and in particular in ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcTool Box. The training material will be focused on vector and raster data models, how to handle them and store them in a geodatabase, their relationship within a geodatabase and on how to develop final cartographic products and maps.

Students will be trained in the creation and editing of vector and raster data, in the usage of basic greoprocessing tools available in ArcGIS 10.x, in the management of a geodatabase, also providing valuable information in the development of high-quality mapping products.

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, the training course starts from the very beginning.

I don’t have the ArcGIs 10. X program. What can I do?
