I am working on developing a series of self-paced GIS training modules. This first effort is designed for users who have never used ArcGIS before, and is a very simple introduction to using ArcMap.
The data are available to download here.
There is also a link to the data download in the exercise.
More updates and material to follow… You will need access to ArcMap 10.1 and have an Internet connection to complete this module.
A manual for learning to use ArcGIS 10, produced by Amy Hillier at the University of Pennsylvania, is available here. This 80+-page document covers many of the options new users should be familiar with, and includes tips on making maps, georeferencing, spatial joins, creating spatial data, and troubleshooting.
See the page ‘training‘ to read about options for GIS training from ESRI (available to Michigan Tech students, faculty, and staff at no cost).
