Learn to create and manage data, maps, and analytical models with ArcGIS.
- Hello, my name is Adam Wilbert and I'd like to welcome you to ArcGIS Essential Training. We'll start by understanding exactly what is meant by the term "geographic information system" then we'll dig into the primary component of ArcGIS, a program called ArcMap. With ArcMap, we'll assemble geospatial data from a variety of real world public domain sources. I'll show you how to import global data sets from online providers and how to combine them with the local data sets that are specific to your area of interest. Then, with the data in place, it'll be time to visit the workings of ArcMap's data and layout views and see how we can use the table of contents to organize our data into easy to manage layer stacks.
We'll introduce the power geoprocessing tools available in the Arc Toolbox. Along the way, we'll explore the differences between raster and vector data types. Finally, we'll look at getting our maps out of ArcGIS and into the real world. I'm excited to bring ArcGIS Essential Training to the lynda.com online training library and I'm glad you've chosen to join me. Now let's get mapping.
