This four-session course covers the map-making aspects of ArcGIS Desktop and introduces its analytical functionality. Powerful and relatively complex, Desktop is the industry standard for geographic information systems (GIS) software. It is part of ESRI's ArcGIS software range, which also includes web-based and mobile GIS, as well as the much more basic and simplified mapping application, ArcGIS Explorer. GIS is designed to store, query, analyse, process, and visualise spatial data. It is typically used for making maps and performing spatial analysis.
