Introductory course to ArcGIS Urban release 2.0

From July 30 to August 6, 2019 

Instructor: Ricardo Cuberos Mejía

Welcome to the course

In this course, the participant will focus on essential ArcMap workflows, tools, and techniques applicable to spatial analysis. In this way, a better understanding of the spatial relationships between elements is achieved and they help to understand why things happen where they happen, all of this to help in future decision-making processes. Thus, 4 types of analysis will be addressed that will help answer questions such as:

  • Which element is on top of another?
  • Which one is close to another?
  • Is there a significant spatial pattern?
  • Is there a frequency pattern in the event?

Course goals

  • Use an analytical workflow to answer analysis questions
  • Develop analytical workflows, such as creating a weighted fit model and determining changes over time
  • Build and adapt geoprocessing models to automate the analysis process.
  • Share geoprocessing results.
