Join TeachMeGIS with Jennifer Harrison for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Learning ArcGIS Python Scripting.
- [Jennifer] Thanks for joining me to learn about Python and ArcGIS. There are some great resources to continue learning about Python and ArcGIS. Don't forget to use the help system that's built in to ArcGIS Desktop to get familiar with the ArcGIS object model, the objects, their methods, and their properties, as well as the list functions. You should also consider the arcgis.com Analysis and Geoprocessing Gallery, for example, scripts.
In addition, the Python website is a great source for additional documentation. If you'd like to contact me, check out my website teachmegis.com. There are also many Python-specific courses on this site to reinforce your understanding of Python syntax and functions. Thanks again, and I wish you the best of luck with your scripts.
