One of the most challenging elements when transitioning to a new software product is gaining a solid understanding of the terminology. ArcGIS 2: Essential Workflows provides a good introduction to the terminology used in ArcGIS. Alternatively, contact us about our specialised courses to help you transition from another GIS platform.
All material is provided at the training course – including computers and relevant software and manuals. Light refreshments will be provided during two designated tea breaks.
For scheduled training, the most current software release will be used for the course. Customised courses and onsite training can be conducted using any software version.
Start with Building Geodatabases to get a basic understanding of the geodatabase format and its functionality.
