Event Details


ArcGIS has much more functionality than simple map display and navigation. It has many tools for collecting, creating, and analyzing data. This three-day class teaches finer skills for using ArcGIS. See how to connect information between tables and mark locations on the map. Practice managing data files, creating new data, and putting the data to work to generate answers to questions.


This class is for those who already know the basics of ArcGIS and want to expand their skills with the software and with GIS in general.

Our Students Speak

“I liked that there were a lot of examples along the way. I also liked how the examples started fresh with each lesson. In the past, I've been in an environment where the examples built on each other, so if you made a small mistake early in the class, it was difficult to fix later on."

“Very good class. We covered a lot of material, but the instructor managed to cover it in adequate depth and keep it engaging."

“This class far exceeded my expectations, boosted my confidence in using ArcMap, and is one I recommend as a model for our other training."

"Well put together, informative, comfortable, helpful, great!"
