Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring ArcToolbox, part of Up and Running with ArcGIS.
…One of the biggest features of Arc GIS is its powerful geoprocessing capabilities.…Geoprocessing is any operation or transformation that…you apply to a set of input data.…Once the geoprocessing task is complete an output file…is saved with the resulting modified or created features.…All of the geo processing tools that you'll have…access to are found in an additional window called arctoolbox.…You can find it both in our map and in our catalog.…And you can use this button here on the toolbar to open it.…Our toolbox opens up as yet another window that we can dock anywhere on our screen.…
I'll go ahead and place it here on this side of my map.…And I'm going to resize everything so it fits a little better.…Now inside the arctoolbox there are a series of other toolboxes.…They all have these labels here and we can drill…in to find the actual tools represented by this hammer icon.…Now not all tools are available all of the time.…For instance if I go down here to geo…statistical analyst tools and let me scroll down here.…
