Get up and running with ArcGIS, a true geographic information system (GIS) that allows you to dig into highly accurate geospatial data in a way other mapping applications can't compete with. It's great creating maps, analyzing data for land use studies and other reports, and preparing data for use in an application or database. Let Adam Wilbert show you how to display, analyze, and illustrate geospatial data with ArcGIS. He explores how to import data from multiple sources, manage it with the ArcGIS catalog, and then start making maps. Learn how to lay out your data in the ArcMap component; add symbols, scale bars, and legends; and get your maps out of ArcGIS and into the real world, whether it's for printing or export to another application.
Hello, my name is Adam Wilbert and I'd like to welcome you to Up and Running with ArcGIS. In this course we are going to quickly get you up to speed building maps in Esri's software's venerable mapping package. We're going to explore how to collect and organize geospatial data and how to combine features into a map layout. Then we'll apply some standard cartographic principles to our documents, in order to arrive at a map that tells the story of our data. We'll start with an exploration of what geospatial data is. We'll see how to manage, explore, and organize geospatial data sets using our catalog.
And I'll explain the differences between vector and raster data types. Once we get oriented there, It'll be time to make some maps. With ArcMap, we'll assemble geospatial data from a variety of real world public domain sources. Then with the data in place, it will be time to visit the workings of ArcMaps data and layout views. We'll take a tour through some of the symbology options in order to bring just the right look to our completed map. Finally, we're looking at getting our maps out of the ArcGIS suite and into the real world. I'm excited to bring ArcGIS to the lynda.com online training library.
And I'm glad you've chosen to join me. Now let's get mapping.
