For online sessions of this class, students must have ArcGIS Pro installed on their computer before class starts.
For many GIS projects, there is a simplified way to accomplish a task, as well as a more advanced approach to complete the same task. Now that you are comfortable with the basic functionality of ArcGIS Pro, you may be looking for some more advanced methods of accomplishing your goals. Maybe you want to set some restrictions on your datasets to make sure the appropriate attribute values are always used, or to ensure that there are never gaps between parcel boundaries. Maybe you want to automate repetitive tasks, or perhaps you would like to tie events – such as a set of bus stops or different stormwater pipe diameters – along line features with automated ease. These advanced operations are often overlooked but can greatly enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of GIS.
This course is for those who are already comfortable with ArcGIS Pro and want to learn more about working with the enhanced functionality of geodatabases in Pro.
The File Geodatabase – A review of the file geodatabase, its capabilities and constituents, and an overview of other GIS data formats.
Geodatabase Compared to Other Standard Formats
Project and Geodatabase Management – Keeping track of ArcGIS Pro projects and the data they use.
Creating a Geodatabase
Project and Geodatabase Management, including data connections and compression
Importing and Exporting
Address Geocoding – Turning address tables into points.
The Geocoding process
Address Locator Options (Streetmap, AGOL, Open Source, Build Your Own)
Creating an Address Locator
Linear Referencing – See multiple events along a line (like potholes or bus stops), use real-world measurement values for symbology and analysis (like highway mile markers), and see how attributes change along portions of the same line (like pavement quality or speed limit).
Linear Referencing Defined
Events Along a Line
Geodatabase Annotation – Creating text features that may or may not be tied to table attributes.
Creating Geodatabase Annotation
Editing Geodatabase Annotation
Geodatabase Topology – Setting geometry rules on your datasets to maintain quality, and easily locate and fix errors.
Creating Geodatabase Topology
Correcting Topology Errors
Maintaining Attribute Integrity – Setting constraints on your datasets to ensure accuracy and maintain consistency.
Contingent Attribute Values
Data Reviewer Extension
Introduction to Arcade – Using the Arcade expression language for field calculations, label and symbology expressions, and creating custom pop-ups.
Why ANOTHER Language?
Arcade Operators and Functions
Custom Symbology with Arcade
Arcade for Labeling
Attribute Rules – Constrain your attributes and validate against the constraints, just like geodatabase topology, and automatically calculate some attribute values as you enter others.
Why Use Attribute Rules?
