Course Detail: GIS-ADV - Advanced ArcGIS
Advanced ArcGIS: Data Creation, Editing, and Analysis

Overview
This 2-day training class introduces advanced ArcGIS Desktop concepts. You will learn how to create new GIS databases, create features, edit features, and attributes, and perform analysis operations on both vector and raster datasets.

Audience &Recommendations
This course assumes that students have taken our Introduction to ArcGIS course or that they have comparable introductory ArcGIS Desktop experience. Knowledge of Windows-based software for basic file management and web browsing is required.

Objectives
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:Create a new geodatabase and add new feature classes to it.Create new features in a feature class as well as edit existing features.Create new point feature classes by geocoding addresses.Find and select features using attribute queries, spatial queries, and other tools.Find relationships between features and data by joining or relating two data tables.Perform analysis operations on vector features such as buffers, overlays, and attribute calculations.Use the Spatial Analyst to create and analyze raster surfaces.

Instructor
Scott Wade is a Certified ArcGIS Desktop 10 Associate. He was an ESRI Authorized Instructor and ESRI Certified Instructor for eight years until 2014 when the program ended. He holds an M.A. in Geography, is a certified GIS Professional (GISP) by the Geographic Information Systems Certification Institute (GISCI), and is CTT+ certified by CompTIA. He is a full-time faculty member of the ECU Department of Geography, Planning, and Environment where he teaches courses in Geographic Information Science. Mr. Wade has extensive private and public sector experience in the field of Geographic Information Science.
