ESRI Seminars Will Explain How to Use Map Templates and Other Resources
Redlands, California — March 03, 2010 — ESRI’s expert cartographers create map templates to help ESRI software users make their own top-quality, beautiful maps for use in print, online, or mobile applications.
Next week, ESRI will host a free, live training seminar to demonstrate how to use these valuable templates and other resources. Best Practices for Working with Map Templates will air at www.esri.com/lts on Thursday, March 4, at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. Pacific standard time. Cartographers, geographic information system (GIS) professionals, and ArcGIS Desktop users of all experience levels are encouraged to attend. Some familiarity with ArcGIS Desktop is recommended.
Using the cartography, sample data, and tools provided in the templates, GIS professionals and others can produce professional-quality maps that support an organization’s daily operations. This seminar explores techniques and best practices to integrate one’s own data with a map template and share the resulting work with others.
Attendees will learn
- How to access map templates
- What types of resources are included with a map template
- Considerations to take into account when configuring data for use with a map template
- How to create a template-based map that showcases their work
- Best practices for sharing their work
