ArcGIS Tasks Register AM Workshop 

April 7, 2021

All GIS professionals have routine geoprocessing tasks that must be completed on an on-going basis. Some of these tasks must be completed daily, weekly, monthly, or periodically on an on-going basis. In many cases these geoprocessing tasks can be automated or semi-automated. ArcGIS Pro includes three methods for automation including ModelBuilder, Python, and the new Task Framework. Many on-going geoprocessing routines require that a lengthy series of steps be completed in a very specific order. Often, GIS users complete these geoprocessing routines from memory or perhaps they’ve documented the steps required to complete the process. The ArcGIS Pro Task framework forces rigor into the process by allowing you to design and build tasks to successfully guide the end user in the completion of geoprocessing routines. Tasks are ideal for automation of geoprocessing routines in the following situations:

  • Less experienced users who need to complete geoprocessing tasks
  • A specific set of steps must be followed in order without deviation
  • Geoprocessing tasks that require some user interaction
  • When you need to document a process that isn’t done frequently

In this workshop you will learn the basics of how to use ArcGIS Pro to automate geoprocessing tasks.

Introduction to Python Register AM Workshop Register PM Workshop
May 5, 2021

Today, GIS and data science are indispensable tools for any organization, allowing for the analysis and optimization of decisions and strategy.  Python has become the preferred programming language for both GIS and data science, thanks to its open source nature, simplicity, applicability to data analysis, and the abundance of libraries for any type of algorithm.

From government and universities to new start-ups and big tech like Google or Microsoft, the use of Python has become a standard tool.  Python is a simple and very versatile language (numerical analysis, web development, data analysis, etc.). This workshop introduces the basics of the Python programming language.

In this workshop you will learn the basic structures of the Python programming language using the ArcGIS Notebooks (available in ArcGIS Pro 2.5 and later).  You can also use Jupyter Notebooks if you don't have a recent version of ArcGIS Pro.
