Working with ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for Geospatial Intelligence—A New ESRI Instructor-Led Course

September 22, 2004 -- Redlands, California—Working with ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for Geospatial Intelligence, a new course from ESRI's instructor-led training program, focuses on how ArcGIS Spatial Analyst software can be used as a decision support tool for defense, intelligence, and law enforcement applications. In this course, both seasoned ArcGIS users and those with basic experience can learn how to take full advantage of the software's raster modeling capabilities.

Instructor-led training courses provide a classroom environment led by trained professionals. Hands-on experience, class participation, a one person per computer policy, and personal interaction shape each course to give users thorough instruction and allow them to practice what they are learning.

The first three days of Working with ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for Geospatial Intelligence cover raster concepts and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst tools for creating spatial models as well as incorporating exercise scenarios related to intelligence and security issues. Participants learn to reclassify raster data for use in creating risk assessment models that identify potential threat locations based on input data and specified criteria included in the model.

Following the first three days of instruction, participants work in groups on a challenge exercise to apply their new skills and create a risk assessment model based on a realistic scenario. This exercise consists of building a second intelligence spatial decision model using reported threat intelligence and unclassified spatial data sets.

On the fifth and final day, students learn how to use the ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension. The entire course culminates with a realistic briefing that requires students to present the results of their scenario-based activity in a PowerPoint presentation.

The class uses vector and raster data typically used in risk assessment, and focuses on understanding raster data models, learning the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst interface, some of the ArcGIS 3D Analyst interface, converting vector data to raster format, building raster databases, learning many of the map algebra functions, applying basic modeling concepts, interpolating surfaces from sample points, using ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for distance modeling, and other valuable functions.

A detailed list of prerequisites and a class schedule, as well as registration information and a course outline, is available at www.esri.com/training.
