ArcGIS provides dozens of geoprocessing tools that allow you to analyze and manage your data efficiently. Tools are available for changing the projection, selecting features, adding fields, buffering features, clipping features, and much more. Models are workflows made of geoprocessing tools and data sources, which can be repeated and automated without having to learn a scripting language. This full-day class will walk you through a real-world analysis example that will familiarize you with geoprocessing tools, ArcGIS Toolbox, and ModelBuilder. The class includes lectures, demos, and hands-on exercises to get you started in the world of geoprocessing.
Efficient Geoprocessing Using ModelBuilder is designed for GIS users who want to use geoprocessing tools and models in their daily operations and analyses.

Our Students Speak
“Loved the pace of the course. It's so nice having the extra time in class to work on the exercises. I don't feel pressured to complete them and move on. It gives me time to formulate my questions.”
“I liked the personal questions that were answered…about how to implement the model builder into my own projects”
“Learning how to use ModelBuilder to automate repetitive tasks is going to be VERY helpful for work.”
“Learning how to do spatial joins and the basic ModelBuilder. Those two exercises back-to-back were great.”
