GIS for beginners! This course introduces participants to fundamental GIS concepts using the ArcGIS Pro software. The class begins with the basics of navigating the map and walks through the process of creating maps, optimizing the display of the data, and performing spatial analysis. At the completion of this course, those attending should have a strong foundation in the basic use of ArcGIS Pro and have an understanding of the strengths of performing spatial analysis with a GIS.


This class is for anyone who wants to create maps and explore data in ArcGISPro. Experienced GIS users who want to make the switch from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro may want to check out ArcGIS Pro Quick-Start for the GIS Professional instead of this class.
