GIS Level 3: Automating your work in ArcGIS Pro
Thursday, January 06, 2022 at 1:00pm to 5:00pmVirtual Event
Do you want to automate your work in Arcgis Pro so you can run processes on many datasets or run the same process on a different dataset a year from now? The goal of this workshop is to get you started on automating your work in Arcgis Pro and giving you tools to make your research reproducable. This workshop introduces you to Model Builder, a visual programming language that gives you access to all Arcgis Pro tools. You will next learn the very basics of coding in Python then start working with arcpy, the Arcgis Pro Python Module. Be prepared to write code during the workshop.
You must already have campus access in order to attend. We will not be issuing guest passes for those not already in MIT covidpass. An MIT ID is required to enter the GIS & Data Lab.
Prerequisite: a basic knowledge of Arcgis Pro, including analysis tools Clip and Buffer. Some scripting experience in Stata, Matlab, R, or another language is helpful.
