Getting Started with ArcGIS for Desktop
Sedona, AZ, February 6, 2014: GeoMattix is pleased to announce the latest GIS training video course. Getting Started with ArcGIS for Desktop is for those new to GIS and/or to Esri’s ArcGIS for Desktop version 10.x software.
The course covers everything a new user needs to know to get up and running with ArcGIS:
- Working with MXD files, shapefiles, and geodatabase data
- Creating beautiful maps for presentation
- Working with attributes to symbolize and label your data
- Analyzing your data using selection and geoprocessing tools
The training course also includes step-by-step exercises and downloadable data so students can practice what they learn. Additionally, live-action demos in each lesson show students time-saving tips and tricks as well as highlight best practices.
Esri users who have not yet made the switch to version 10.x will appreciate the course for its easy introduction to new functionality and changes to the interface. New GIS users will enjoy the simple, clear presentation and straightforward style of the course.
Getting Started with ArcGIS for Desktop is a course that GeoMattix has been teaching in person for organizations for the past year. “I wanted to make the popular course available to people who are unable to travel or spend a lot of money on traditional training,” explains Michele Mattix, managing director of GeoMattix. “Having these courses available as online videos extends the reach of the GIS training services we offer.”
Getting Started with ArcGIS for Desktop is available to purchase and watch online.
