Curso Online de ArcGIS 10.x - Nivel avanzado onlin

This course will qualify students in ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and in particular in the usage of 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 with geodatabases, 2D and 3D data visualization, topological corrections 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 advanced greoprocessing tools, in the management of geodatabases and their relationship with vector and raster data, 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.

  • Highlight the importance and utility of a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) especially in the elaboration of complex spatial analysis with applicability in engineering design, topography, geology, hydrology.
  • Learn about ModelBuilder which can be used in the development of complex tools, connect different ArcToolBox tools and automate workflows.
  • Find about all the advantages of a geodatabase, the possibility of massive topological error correction of vector layers, network analysis and about the capabilities of finding optimal routes, accessibility studies, etc.
  • Improve your skills and gain experience in data preparation, layout development, map creation and high quality products delivery.

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?

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.

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.
