As ArcGIS editing becomes more robust and specialized, it also becomes more and more complex. Many basic features become obscured in the nearly overwhelming environment of toolbars and toolboxes. Add advanced tasks such as versioning and topology to the mix, and it's enough to send unseasoned editors and analysts screaming into the night. We'll start with a review of how to find and use the basic editing functions that ArcMap offers, then move on to more advanced editing concepts.
The class authors and instructors regularly apply the techniques taught in this class to a large and complex dataset. They know what works, what doesn't, and how to make the best use of time spent in editing. They impart that knowledge to the students in a straightforward manner with demonstrations and hands-on exercises that use real-world (King County) data.
Topics in Advanced GIS Editing is designed for GIS users who want to improve their editing skills and analysis techniques.
Activities and Goals
Prerequisites and Recommendations
Students should be familiar with basic GIS theory and the general functionality of ArcCatalog and ArcMap. This class also requires a basic knowledge of GIS editing concepts. Completion of Fundamentals of ArcGIS and Intermediate GIS Concepts or equivalent knowledge is required.
Our Students Speak
“Awesome class! Will use every bit of this knowledge in my GDB.”
“The instructors were both terrific. The class size was also nice and manageable and allowed time for assistance, questions and a slower pace.”
“Understanding of COGO even though I may never use it. It will be beneficial in that I understand it's potential. I hope to use it. I loved the more advanced editing tools. I also liked the refresher (for me) on geodatabase domains and subtypes.”
