ArcGIS Pro: Working with ModelBuilder


This one day course builds upon your knowledge of ArcGIS Pro to manage your geoprocessing workflows within ModelBuilder.

We will go over the basics of a model and then quickly delve into the more useful parts of ModelBuilder, to include iterators, in-memory workspaces, in-line variable substitution as well as investigating ModelBuilder’s utility and logic tools. You will also be taught advanced modelling techniques such as conditional branching and embedding models inside of models.

All sections are supplemented with activities and hands-on exercises.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is an integral part of applying for and maintaining Chartered Geographer accreditation. Attendance of this course will provide the attendee with 5 CPD points. Click here to find out more
