Courses

GIS 7011. Introducing ArcGIS. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

ArcGIS is a GIS developed and sold by Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI). It has a long history and has been through many versions and changes. Originally developed for large mainframe computers, in the last 10 years it has metamorphosed from a system based on typed commands to a full-featured graphical user interface (GUI), which makes it easier to use. Because of the size and complexity of the suite of programs, and because users have come to depend on certain aspects of the software, much of the code is carried forward and included in new versions. Knowing this background helps a student of ArcGIS understand the nature of the ArcGIS system, and helps explain some of its odd features and characteristics.

GIS 7012. Working with ArcMap. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

ArcMap works with map documents; a map document is a collection of different spatial data layers and tables, along with instructions for how the layers will be displayed. Map features have properties that control the symbol, color, and style with which they are drawn. Tables have properties that specify which fields are shown, how many decimal places are included, and so on. The map document keeps track of all of these layers and their properties, so that when it is opened again, the map appears exactly as it was when it was last saved. Even the size of the windows and the location of the toolbars are stored when saving the document.

GIS 7013. Coordinate Systems and Map Projections. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

A successful GIS system depends in large part on using projections correctly, and a person's skill in managing and converting projections can dictate the value of a database. Unfortunately, projections can be somewhat daunting to those encountering them for the first time, so review is often necessary to become comfortable. One learns best about projections by working with them.

GIS 7014. Drawing & Symbolizing Features. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

ArcMap provides many ways to present and analyze map data, and one of the most powerful techniques is assigning symbols based on one or more attributes. Readers can quickly see spatial patterns not readily apparent from looking at the data. This section presents many ways to display features, and it also shows how to edit symbols and save them in groups, as styles.

GIS 7015. Working with Tables. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

A table is a data structure for storing multiple attributes about a location or object. ArcGIS manages these data tables in an object it refers to as a Table, which is a window that displays information from the tabular data structure and allows the user to work with the information in the file. The data may come from several types of data files, but the Table itself always looks the same and has the same functions, so that users don't need to learn different commands for working with different file types.

GIS 7016. Queries. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

A query extracts features or records from a data table and isolates them for further use, such as printing them, calculating statistics, editing them, creating new files from them, or doing more queries. In the simplest kind of query, the seleceted features are highlighted on the screen, and the corresponding records in the table are highlighted as well. This course provides examples of that selection and highlighting.

GIS 7017. Spatial Joins. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

A spatial join is similar to an attribute join except that instead of using a common field to decide which rows in the table match up, the location of the spatial feature is used. For example, a point layer containing locations of wells and a polygon layer of geology could be joined to determine the geologic unit the well lies within. Each well gets the attribute information from the polygon it lines inside. An alternate criterion is distance - joining records that lie closest to each other, such as tagging each hotel with its closet restaurant.

GIS 7018. Map Overlay. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

Spatial joins, although powerful, are limited when spatial features do not overlap exactly. When this limitation occurs, the ability to split features and assign use to each section is required. This ablility to split features that partially overlap is the most important feature of a map overlay and explains how it differs from a join.

GIS 7019. Presenting Data. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

GIS analysis often results in information to be shared with others in the form of maps or reports. Whether you're creating a large poster-style map, a page-sized map, or a report, a few guidelines help in devising a map design which expresses the essence of the data and gets its message across. This section introduces some basic ways to communicate ideas to others.

GIS 7110. Geocoding. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

A street address contains a type of spatial information; however, additional knowledge on the part of the post office is required in order to deliver mail, e.g. the location of the street and the sequence of house numbers. Geocoding combines map information with street addresses in order to locate a point uniquely; it enables someone to convert a list of addresses into points on a map.

GIS 7111. Basic Editing in ArcMap. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

Editing in ArcMap provides the ability to modify and update existing layers of data, or to create new ones. For example, if a housing subdivision is added to a city, the new roads must be added to the city's roads layer. Likewise, new parcels, sewr lines, and other infrastructure need to be added to the city database to ensure it is up to date. A new layer may be created to reflect a city council's decision to create garbage collection zones where none existed before. This section provides insight into these processes.

GIS 7112. More Editing Techniques. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

Examining additional ways to form and modify features. First, examing the functions of the different types of sketch tools, look at ways to modify and reshape features, combine features together, and create new features by buffering old ones. Finally, discovering how to easily edit features which share a common boundary.

GIS 7113. Working with Geodatabases. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

In ArcGIS software, coverages were the first data model used. Later in ArcView, shapefiles were developed; in ArcGIS 8 the geodatabase model arrived. The new model offers advantages over coverages and shapefiles but is simpler in construction and more robust in general usage. This module provides insight into those advantages.

GIS 7114. Analyzing Networks. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

Networks consist of a system of paths traveled by a variety of things, e.g. traffic, water, sewage or electricity; they generally also have a modeling capability to be able to better answer common problems that may arise. Geodatabases contain a special data model developed to answer those same kinds of questions by creating a network of feature classes or layers. This module explores that technique.

GIS 7115. Raster Analysis. 0.0 Hours. Class-440.0. Clinical-0.0. Lab-0.0. Work-0.0

The availability of two different data models, raster and vector, provides added flexibility to options for data storage and analysis. Neither model is intrinsically superior; both have areas in which they excel and areas in which they are at a disadvantage. Having a grasp of both tools holds the key to developing the most efficient and accurate analysis.

ArcGIS 9.3 is a software package developed and sold by Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI). It has a long history and has been through many versions and changes. Originally developed for large mainframe computers, in the last 10 years it has metamorphosed from a system based on typed commands to a full-featured graphical user interface (GUI), which makes it easier to use. Because of the size and complexity of the suite of programs, and because users have come to depend on certain aspects of the software, much of the code is carried forward and included in new versions. Knowing this background helps a student of ArcGIS understand the nature of the ArcGIS system, and helps explain some of its odd features and characteristics.
