Next steps

So now you're Up and Running with ArcGIS. But the learning doesn't stop here. There's a world of additional extensions and tools that are just waiting for you to continue exploring. Here's a couple of resources that I found to be helpful when digging deeper into ArcMap. The first is the incredibly active user forums available at forums.arcgis.com. Here, users ask each other questions on a full gamut of topics in the world of ArcGIS. It's a great place to get to know other users and share information. Or just read through the questions and answers that other people are asking. The second resource that I like is gis.stackexchange.com.

Here users have a variety of gis systems delve deeper into some of the complex work flow, statistical, or modeling questions. The nice thing about stack exchange is the collaborative nature in finding the best correct answer and floating it to the top of the thread. Finally, you're not going to get very far in ArcJS without data, so start exploring your local government or university repositories and see what you can locate in the federal ones, as well. A couple of my United States based favorites are census.gov/geo/maps-data It provides demographic and boundary data from the US Census.

The next one is nationalatlas.gov/pros. This provides a portal to datasets from a wide variety of US agencies. And finally, there's nationalmap.gov/viewer, which links to data that is used to make up the USGS typographic maps for the country. I hope you've enjoyed this course. Now it's time to go out and make some great maps. And if you do, then please share them with my on Twitter. I am @awilbert. I'd love to see what you create. Or feel free to reach out if you just want to talk about maps. Have a great day.
