Students of this course will explore advanced ArcGIS techniques for geoprocessing, data analysis, project management, and metadata. The course is designed around the ArcGIS Pro geoprocessing framework: ArcToolbox, ModelBuilder, and Python/arcpy scripting.
The course starts with ModelBuilder, where students will learn how to use iterators and model elements to automate complicated multi-step geoprocessing workflows through any number of datasets.
The course then moves into Python scripting and the arcpy module for geo-processing scripts inside of ArcGIS Pro. This part of the course is split between learning Python scripting techniques not unique or inherent to ArcGIS Pro, and arcpy scripting techniques specific to ArcGIS Pro.
To wrap up the course, we introduce techniques to automate metadata writing and ArcGIS Pro project (aprx) management.
