Introduction to ArcGIS Pro (GIS300/GIS800)

A -three day INTENSIVE course that introduces you to mapping and core analyses in GIS.

What: Learn to identify spatial patterns, create well-designed maps at a variety of scales, and interrogate spatial data.

In this course you will be taught the basics of map creation and design in ArcGIS Pro software. You will be introduced to how to project and symbolise data and learn core analytics for humanities research.

When: Introduction to ArcGIS Pro will run over three-days from June 17-19 OR June 24-26, 2019.

Please note: You only need to do one three-day round of this course.

Mapping in ArcGIS Pro (GIS100/GIS600)

5 x 2.5hr modules that teach the basics of map production in ArcGIS Pro.

What: Learn to create well-designed maps at a variety of scales.

In this course you will be taught the basics of map creation and design in ArcGIS Pro software. You will be introduced to core mapping concepts including: how to source and project data; how to select symbology which highlights your map’s core message; and, how to create clear and balanced maps.

When: Mapping in ArcGIS Pro will run over five sessions from July 18 - August 15, 2019.

An intensive version of this course will also be offered later in the year.

 

GIS Analysis for Research 1 (GIS101/GIS601)

4 x 2.5hr modules that introduce basic analysis in ArcGIS Pro.

What: Learn a range of simple GIS analyses which can support your research and teaching.

In this course you be introduced to a range of core analytic and spatial skills for humanities research. Having completed this course you will be able to clip and merge datasets, assess proximity, count the number of features in an area, summarise and map census data and identify the distance and direction between key features.

This course builds on skills developed in GIS Basics for Research (GIS100). Participants in this course will need to have completed GIS100 or have some familiarity with ArcGIS. Contact Sandy Potter for further information.

When: GIS Analysis for Research 1 will run over four sessions from August 22 - September 12, 2019.

Some experience with GIS necessary.

 

GIS Analysis for Research 2 (GIS102/GIS602)

4 x 2.5hr modules that introduce basic analysis in ArcGIS Pro.

What: Learn additional GIS analyses which can support your research and teaching.

In this course you will learn the basics of suitability analyses using raster datasets. You will also begin to explore interpolation and how you can generate continuous surfaces from data points. Finally, you will be introduced to skills for trouble shooting and have a chance to explore how GIS analysis might be applied to your own research.

This course builds on skills developed in GIS Basics for Research (GIS100) and on GIS Analysis for Research 1 (GIS101). Participants in this course will need to have completed GIS100 and GIS101, or have some familiarity with ArcGIS. Contact Sandy Potter for further information.

When: GIS Analysis for Research 2 will run over four sessions from September 19 - October 10, 2019.

Some experience with GIS necessary.
