This course introduces ArcGIS Server and its components. Students will learn how to install, configure, and apply it both as administrators and consumers of GIS services. Students will also learn how to publish and work with the different types of web map services and geo-processing models that are optimized for performance. Also covered in the course is how to create out-of-the-box Web mapping applications using viewers and templates for browsers and mobile devices. Such applications allow GIS to become an omnipresent and dynamic resource for everyday life. This course is geared toward all levels of GIS professionals who wish to develop or enhance their abilities of using ArcGIS for Server to benefit their organization. No programming experience is necessary, although it is helpful to have some knowledge and/or experience of programming concepts.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a way of digitally mapping data in a visual way that allows geographic data to be stored, displayed and analyzed. Geographic Information Systems can be used in a variety of ways, including crime prevention, public health, and historical research.
GIS takes data from spreadsheets and tables and converts them to more visually comprehensible ways, and allows you to work with large quantities of data from a variety of sources. These different sources can be displayed simultaneously as layers of information stacked on top of each other, to allow a more comprehensive understanding of the issue at hand.
