Editing and Geoprocessing Automation in ArcGIS Pro 2.x 

Instructor: Eric Pimpler, Geospatial Training Services - http://geospatialtraining.com - eric@geospatialtraining.com 

Duration: Full Day (8:00AM – 5:00PM) 

Description: In this one day workshop students will learn to use ArcGIS Pro for spatial and attribute editing as well as geoprocessing automation with the new task framework. 

Cost: $399 

Formal and Requirements: This is a lecture style instruction with hands on workshops. Students need to bring their own laptop with ArcGIS Pro 2.x installed.  

 

ArcGIS Development Using Python: Scripts and Tools in Desktop and Pro 

Instructor: David Howes, David Howes - LLC - http://dhowes.com, http://gispd.com - david@dhowes.com 

Duration: Half Day (8:00AM – 12:00PM) 

Cost:  

Description: The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees how to extend the ArcGIS desktop products, ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS Pro, by using Python to create functionality that can run as standalone programs or operate inside the software as geoprocessing tools. Three primary topics will be covered: (1) Desktop ArcGIS Python overview and setup; (2) Running Python scripts; and (3) Creating geoprocessing tools (Script Tools and Python Toolboxes).  JetBrains PyCharm Community Edition will be used for coding demonstrations and a brief introduction to its features and capabilities will be provided. Attendees will be able to leave the workshop having a strong basis for recognizing and pursuing their desktop ArcGIS customization needs, increasing the value of their ArcGIS investment and enhancing their standing and employability as GIS professionals.

Intended Audience - GIS professionals familiar with the ArcGIS desktop products and basic Python programming. 

Learning Objectives

  • Extend the capabilities of the ArcGIS desktop programs using Python. 
  • Explore the relative merits and applicability of the Python extensibility options.
  • Create Python standalone programs and geoprocessing tools. 

Format and Requirements: The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and hands-on exercises. Those who wish to complete the exercises during the workshop will need to bring a laptop with ArcGIS for Desktop (latest version preferred, but not critical), ArcGIS Pro (latest version) and JetBrains PyCharm Community Edition (latest version) installed.

Those unfamiliar with PyCharm are advised to work through the introductory materials available from the JetBrains website (https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/) prior to arriving at the workshop. In order to ensure that the workshop time can be fully devoted to the primary topics, time will not be allowed during the workshop itself for installation of the required software. 

 

Introduction to Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS Custom Widget Development 

Instructor: David Howes, David Howes - LLC - http://dhowes.com, http://gispd.com - david@dhowes.com 

Duration: Half Day (1:00PM – 5:00PM) 

Cost:  

Description:  Esri’s Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS supports the creation of web applications that can be extended using widgets, which are developed using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The Layer List is an example of such a widget, consisting of a button in the web application and a form which opens when the button is clicked. The form provides information about map layers along with associated functionality. The goal of the workshop is to teach attendees the basic principles required to create their own custom widgets and, thus, add their own functionality to web mapping applications. Specifically, widgets are based on the Dojo open source toolkit, while the ArcGIS API for JavaScript provides capabilities for working with maps and associated tasks. Custom widgets are created using the Developer Edition of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, which allows for the creation of web applications that can be hosted by organizations, especially within an ArcGIS Enterprise environment, as opposed to within ArcGIS Online (security concerns prevent the development and deployment of widgets in ArcGIS Online). 

The workshop will provide an introduction to (1) the role of widgets in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, (2) installation and use of the Developer Edition, (3) creation of basic Dojo widgets, (4) use of version 3.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript in widget development for 2D applications and (5) widget deployment. 

Visual Studio code (https://code.visualstudio.com/) will be used for the development demonstrations and a brief introduction to its features and capabilities will be provided. Attendees will be able to leave the workshop having a strong basis for developing their own custom widgets for use in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS applications. This will help them increase the value of their ArcGIS investment and enhance their standing and employability as GIS professionals. 

Intended Audience - GIS professionals having basic familiarity with web development (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) and version 3.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. 

Learning Objectives -Extend the capabilities of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS applications by developing custom widgets. 

Format and Requirements:The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and hands-on exercises. Those who wish to complete the exercises during the workshop will need to bring their own laptop with Visual Studio code installed. Attendees are encouraged to explore its capabilities prior to arriving at the workshop.

Instructor: Aaron Licker, Geospatial Consulting (https://www.lgeo.co), aaron@lgeo.com 

Duration: Full Day (8:00AM – 5:00PM) 

Description: Your Instructor: Aaron Licker, 

Cost: $399

Description: In this one day workshop students will learn how to approach geo-spatial data to derive additional value for their organizations or clients.  The workshop will cover topics such as context building, developing an analytical mindset, organizational capacity building and effective communication of geospatial data and analysis.

Format and Requirements: Lecture plus hands on workshop.  Students will need to bring their own laptop with ArcMap 10.7 and/or arcgis Pro 2.x installed.
