As ArcGIS analysis techniques become more robust and specialized, they also become more and more complex. Many basic features become obscured in the nearly overwhelming environment of toolbars and toolboxes. This half-day class is a survey of the Analysis Tools toolbox in ArcToolbox, which provides a powerful set of tools to perform the various geoprocessing operations on all types of vector data. The instructor will conduct a detailed walk-through of each tool in the toolbox with demonstrations of the most widely applied tools. The course culminates in an exercise designed to show in detail how to use the analysis tools to create meaningful data and reports.
The class authors and instructors regularly apply the techniques taught in this class to a large and complex data set. They know what works, what doesn't, and how to make the best use of time spent while doing GIS analysis; they impart that knowledge to the students in a straightforward manner with demonstrations and hands-on exercises that use real-world (King County) data.
Effective Analysis is designed for GIS users who want to improve their analysis techniques.
