From the list of UC Davis Course Catalog In this course, you will investigate the universe of spatial examination and map-making with geographic data frameworks (GIS). In this class, you will get familiar with the fundamentals of the business’ driving programming device, ArcGIS. In this course, you will figure out how GIS developed from paper guides to the internationally incorporated electronic programming bundles of today. You will introduce ArcGIS on your PC and figure out how to utilize online assistance to address specialized inquiries. You will be able to open up ArcGIS and investigate information utilizing ArcMap, and get familiar with the primary ideas of GIS, how to break down information, and make your first UC Davis Course Catalog guide.
Course Introduction and Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS):
In this module, we will cover course expectations, give you a quick overview of GIS and what’s great about it, take a first look at ArcGIS and identify key elements in the interface, and define core geospatial concepts and terminology. In Section 2, we will discuss options for desktop GIS, the history of GIS and how it’s used today, discuss resources and help that you can use, and lay out core skills that are relevant to you as a GIS analyst. We’ll close out by showing you how to get a copy of ArcGIS for this course, and with a tutorial on getting started in ArcGIS.
In this module, we will explore GIS data using ArcMap and will explore and change properties of GIS layers to change map displays. We will subset data using selections, and explore feature attributes. Finally, we will learn about projections and use that knowledge as we run geoprocessing tools.
Making Maps With Common Datasets:
In this module we will identify common datasets in both the US and Internationally. We will use a new mode in ArcGIS to create complete maps that include proper symbology, legends, titles, north arrows, and data sources. We will further use more advanced mapping techniques to output map books and label items on the map.
Retrieving and Sharing Data:
In this module, we will view and edit metadata in order to create higher quality data. We will retrieve data from the web and share data, discuss workspaces and file formats, and create layer and map packages. We will also use multiple file formats for GIS data and be able to appropriately choose between them based upon project requirements.
