Introduction to Arc GIS I & GPS Basic Course

Date: 5 November 2017 - 9 November 2017
Course ID: ADDQ045/2017
Duration: 5 Days
Fee US $: 4200 US$
Venue: Muscat / Oman

Introduction:

This course teaches what a GIS is and what you can do with it. Working with various components of the ArcGIS system, you will create GIS maps, explore and analyze the data behind the maps, and apply methods to easily share your maps. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of how GIS maps and ArcGIS tools are used to visualize real-world features, discover patterns, obtain information, and communicate that information to others.

Who should attend:

Engineers planning and urban planning

Engineers coordination sites and Landscape

Specialists in the field of Literature Department of Geography

Specialists in the field of geographic information systems

Specializing in natural disasters

Authority officials urban planning

INTRODUCTION:

The aim of Part 1 of this exercise is for you to get an understanding of the way spatial data is organised in ArcMap and to explore some basic GIS procedures. By the end of this practical you should be able to:

• Open an existing ArcMap map project.

• Navigate and organise layers of data.

• Query layer features.

• Select features from a layer based on attribute.

• Perform simple locational and attribute queries.
