This workshop will introduce you to the basics of geographic information system (GIS) mapping using ESRI’s ArcGIS Online platform. In this session, you will learn how to use the ArcGIS online system, to create a series of maps. After creating the maps, you can then export your maps to ESRI’s Story Maps, which will allow you to create stable link to a mixed media mapping project that you can use for research, teaching, and job portfolio purposes.
This course is for people who know something about data analysis and want to learn how the special capabilities of spatial data analysis provide deeper understanding. You'll get free access to the full analytical capabilities of ArcGIS Online, Esri's cloud-based mapping and analytics platform.
Discover what's possible when you integrate computer-aided design (CAD) data and building information models (BIM) with geographic information systems (GIS) technology. This course is for GIS and architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals and anyone else who wants to improve project decision-making, gain critical insights, and deliver more sustainable infrastructure, more efficiently. You'll explore powerful GIS visualization and spatial analysis capabilities and see firsthand how location-based insight enhances each phase of the project life cycle—from planning and design to construction and ongoing operations.
Once, only cartographers made maps. Today, anyone can. Still, cartographers can teach people to make better maps, just as chefs can show people how to prepare better meals. With coaching from accomplished cartographers and practical, hands-on exercises, you'll become a smarter mapmaker, ready to go beyond the defaults and produce engaging maps that communicate with impact.
A changing climate creates complex, interrelated, and inherently geographic challenges. Because it uses location as a common thread, GIS technology is uniquely suited to create clarity from myriad data sources and illuminate climate-related risks, opportunities, and sustainable solutions. Discover how GIS is being used today to understand and prepare for a future that requires more resilient communities, systems, and infrastructure. You'll explore the latest ArcGIS capabilities and learn how to create insight that drives positive action.
Spatial data science allows analysts to extract deeper insight from data using a comprehensive set of analytical methods and spatial algorithms, including machine learning and deep learning techniques. This course explores the application of spatial data science to uncover hidden patterns and improve predictive modeling. You'll work with powerful analytical tools in Esri's ArcGIS software and learn how to integrate popular open data science packages into your analyses.
Geography lovers and enthusiasts, gather around and let’s celebrate the amazing technology of Geographic Information Systems on GIS Day, on November 16 this year. This is an annual holiday celebrated on the third Wednesday of November, or the Wednesday within Geography Awareness Week. GIS is said to be the technology that answers the question of “where?” It is a scientific framework for capturing, analyzing, and visualizing location data to help make better decisions. For example, GIS can predict areas of flooding. Whether you’re a geography newbie or master cartographer, you can celebrate the brilliant technology of GIS, its contributions to the real world, and your own GIS accomplishments on GIS Day every year. Help others learn more about geography and discover GIS.
