What & When:

Introduction to ArcGIS I - Nov 15-16*, Dec 10-11**, Jan 14-15***


This two day ESRI developed class begins the foundation for becoming a
successful ArcView(r), ArcEditor(tm), or ArcInfo(tm) user. This course
covers fundamental GIS concepts as well as how to query a GIS database,
manipulate tabular data, edit spatial and attribute data, and present
data clearly and efficiently using maps and charts. Participants learn
how to use ArcMap(tm), ArcCatalog(tm), and ArcToolbox(tm) and explore
how these applications work together to provide a complete GIS software


> Introduction to ArcGIS II - Jan 16-18***


Extend what you learned in Introduction to ArcGIS I with further
exploration of ArcMap and ArcCatalog. This three day ESRI developed
course focuses on spatial analysis, automation of spatial and attribute
data, editing, and advanced options for cartographic display. A portion
of the class is reserved for carrying out an analysis project and
applying many of the new skills and techniques learned in this course.
Participants conduct queries, perform spatial analysis, and present
their results in a hard-copy map.


pdf> Using AutoCAD data in ArcGIS - Nov 15-16*


With the ever increasing need for design and GIS professionals to share
data, it is critical that GIS users understand and are able to make use
of data created with Autodesk's AutoCAD(r) Software.  Using AutoCAD Data
in ArcGIS is a two day class that explains the dwg format and how to
integrate them into standard ESRI data formats such as shapefiles and
geodatabases. This class was developed by Keck & Wood based on our many
years of experience having to share data between our engineers and our
GIS professionals.

Some Student Feedback:

"The courses were very helpful and went above and beyond my
expectations. Since I had no experience in GIS, these courses were
taught on an understandable level in which I retained knowledgeable
information. Tripp was great presenting the material. He made the class
fun and easy to understand in using everyday examples. I would
definitely take another class from Tripp." - Matthew Chancey - Mapping
Department - Monroe Utilities Network - Introduction to ArcGIS I & II -


"Excellent, fantastic, outstanding! Tripp knows his stuff and
communicates it well! The courses are well planned and easy to
understand. The examples are clear and practical to government use. This
is an excellent introduction to ArcGIS. " - Matthew Robinson - IT
Director - Peachtree City, GA - Introduction to ArcGIS I & II -


"Great material that followed up with Intro to GIS I. All the material
was relevant to what I needed to know. Thanks ESRI!!  Mr. Corbin, the
instructor, was very knowledgeable about the software and the procedures
that were entailed to use it. Tripp was excellent in his presentation!!"

Matt Davis - GIS Tech - City of Oxford, MS - Introduction to ArcGIS II -


"The course very organized. The exercises were very helpful for me
throughout the class. I wanted to learn how do bridge the gap between
AutoCAD data and ArcGIS GIS data, and I feel this course did that. This
class will prove helpful in my day to day GIS work, since we are
converting over to ArcGIS right now.  I would recommend this class to
everyone in the GIS field that has anything to do with any form of
AutoCAD data." - David Mckee - GIS Specialist - Dawson County, GA -
