Learning ArcGIS Basics 2019

After a long, long, slog, I am finally releasing an updated to my ArcGIS book. The new book covers several new topics including Data Management and Geocoding. I have also included a section on finding a GIS Job.

The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and ArcGIS Desktop 10.x by ESRI.

Over the years, I have worked with various GIS lessons, tutorials and how-to books, websites, and other resources. This book is a compilation of all the various “best practices” that I have learned. My goal is to help those new to GIS and ArcGIS to develop a solid foundation upon which to build.

Topics Covered:

Chapter 1 - Introduction Chapter 2 - Data Management Chapter 3 - The ArcGIS Suite Chapter 4 - The GIS Workspace Chapter 5 - Project Management and GIS Chapter 6 - Displaying Spatial Data Chapter 7 - Selecting Features Chapter 8 - Symbolizing Data Chapter 9 - Making A Layout Chapter 10 - Mid-Term Exercise 1 Chapter 11 - Using Attribute Data Chapter 12 - Creating and Editing Data Chapter 13 - Geocoding and GPS Data Chapter 14 - Coordinate system and Projection Chapter 15 - Geoprocessing Chapter 16 - Final Exercise Chapter 17 - Tips for a GIS Interview
