Keck & Wood, Inc. has scheduled Introduction to ArcGIS I & II Classes
for April. The Introduction to ArcGIS I class will be held on April
17-18. The Introduction to ArcGIS II class will be held on April 19-21.
The classes will be held at Keck & Wood's Corporate Office in Duluth
Georgia. Our office is located just behind Gwinnett Place Mall with easy

The classes will be limited to 8 students. If the total number of
students wishing to take the class exceeds the limit additional classes
will be scheduled. Keck & Wood will provide training computers,
software, an Authorized Instructor and all course materials needed to
complete the classes. However students wishing to provide their own

General Overview of Classes:

These classes introduce participants to ArcGIS(tm) (ArcView, ArcEditor,
& ArcInfo) and provide the foundation for becoming a successful user.
Participants learn how to use ArcMap(tm) and ArcCatalog(tm) and explore
how these applications work together to provide a complete GIS software
solution. Many States and professional organizations allow these classes
to be counted as PDHs or CEUs.

The Introduction to ArcGIS I course is a 2 day class designed for anyone
new to ArcGIS software (ArcView, ArcEditor or ArcInfo), new to GIS or
migrating from ArcView 3.x. This class covers fundamental GIS concepts
as well as how to create, edit, and work with georeferenced spatial data
(points, lines & polygons). Participants learn how to manipulate tabular
data, query a GIS database, and present data clearly and efficiently
using maps and charts.

The Introduction to ArcGIS II course is a 3 day class that continues to
build on the skills learned during the Introduction to ArcGIS I and
teaches students about some of the more advanced functions found within
the ArcGIS software suite such as spatial and attribute validation,
creating and using topologies, labeling and annotation, geoprocessing,
data conversion, spatial analysis, and geocoding. Those attending
classes will receive lecture and exercise manuals,  a CD-ROM containing
all data used in the class exercises, and a certificate of completion.

Prerequisites and recommendations:

Participants should know how to use Microsoft Windows and have some
basic understanding of databases or spreadsheets.
