Performing Analysis with ArcGIS for Desktop

Call for Price

Learn a standard workflow you can apply to any spatial analysis project. You will perform different types of analyses to efficiently create reliable results that support informed decision making. This course uses ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced (ArcMap) and some exercises use tools in the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension.

Course concepts apply to ArcGIS 10.2,and above. Esri will provide ArcGIS 10.7 or above for use during class.

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.
