functions of a GIS, why a GIS database is powerful, and what coordinate
systems and map projections are and why they are important. In course
exercises students work with ArcMap, an application within ArcGIS
Desktop, to visualize geographic data, create maps, query a GIS
database, perform spatial analysis using common analysis tools, and
solve geographic problems using a systematic approach. This course
teaches the skills and knowledge needed to take other ArcGIS Desktop
courses.

features; Symbolizing features based on their attributes; Labeling
features based on their attributes
--Creating map layouts: Understanding data view and layout view; Using
the Layout toolbar; Using map templates; Modifying map elements;
Printing maps
--Understanding location: Defining coordinate systems and map
projections; Reading and finding location coordinates on a map;
Measuring area and distance on a map
--Understanding raster and vector data: Representing geography; Storing
real-world locations; Symbolizing rasters; Using raster and vector data
together; Understanding geodatabases
--Acquiring geographic data: Data formats; Methods of creating
geographic data; Using
ArcCatalog to explore geographic data; Using metadata

Understanding and
performing spatial queries
--Analyzing spatial relationships: Understanding overlay; Understanding
buffer; Accessing tools in ArcToolbox; Performing Union and Intersect;

This course is for those who are new to geographic information systems
(GIS) and ArcGIS in general.

PREREQUISITES AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Students should know how to use Windows-based software for basic file
management and browsing.

COST

ARCGIS DESKTOP II:  TOOLS & FUNCTIONALITY FOR ARCGIS 10

Course No: 11-GIS003 * June 21-23, 2011 * 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Location: UNA East Campus, 1640 Tune Ave., Florence, AL
Room 106 (Computer Lab) * 2.1 CEUs
Course counts toward CAPZO Recertification

COURSE OVERVIEW
This three-day course teaches the range of functionality available in
the ArcGIS desktop software and the essential tools for visualizing,
creating, managing, and analyzing geographic data. This hands-on course
uses exercises to emphasize practice with ArcMap and ArcCatalog (the
primary applications included with ArcGIS Desktop software) to perform
common GIS tasks and workflows. The tools for creating and managing
geographic data, displaying data on maps in different ways, and
combining and analyzing data to discover patterns and relationships are
highlighted, and students learn how ArcGIS Desktop provides a complete
GIS software solution. By the end of the course, students will be
prepared to start working with the software on their own. 

COURSE GOALS
--List common GIS tasks and identify which ArcGIS Desktop application is
used for each task
--Understand what the geodatabase offers for GIS data storage
--Create and edit geodatabase features
--Control the appearance and display of data layers in ArcMap
--Classify and symbolize map data
--Label map features
--Change the coordinate system and map projection used to display a
dataset
--Access feature information in tables and control table display
properties
--Query and analyze GIS data
--Build a simple model to automate a GIS analysis workflow
--Create presentation-quality maps and graphs

TOPICS COVERED
--Investigating geographic data including how it is stored (Raster &
Vector), data formats, managing data in ArcCatalog and viewing data in
ArcMap
--Managing map layers and navigating in a map (zooming, bookmarks and
scale)
--Symbolizing categorical data: types of symbols, choosing symbols and
creating symbols
--Symbolizing quantitative data: symbology options and classification
methods
--Labeling map features and annotation basics
--Coordinating systems and map projections
--Making a Map: Layouts, adding map elements (Legends, North Arrows,
Scales and so on)
--Basic data editing techniques for spatial and attribute data
--Managing data tables including joins and relates between two or more
tables
--Creating a geodatabase and feature classes
--Geocoding addresses or x,y coordinates
--Common analysis operations such as queries, clipping data, buffering
and overlaying data

Students should have completed ArcGIS Desktop I: Getting Started with
GIS or have equivalent knowledge as well as have a working knowledge of
Windows and file management.

COST
The registration fee is $1299 per student and includes a continental
