Using Python in ArcGIS

Friday, January 11, 2019 at 10:00am to 4:00pm

Building 7, 7-238 (GIS & Data Lab)
77 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

You'll learn just enough Python scripting to work with the ArcPY module. You will learn to use commands for both vector and raster data processing. We will focus on using Python to automate map making. With the ArcPy mapping module you can easily create and update map layers and content to create customized maps that can be exported for presentations and reports.

Whether you need to create 10 or 1000 maps, you'll learn how to save time by using Python.

Prerequisite: a basic knowledge of ArcMap, including analysis tools including Clip and Buffer. Familiarity with Model Builder will be helpful.

There will be a 1 hour break for lunch on your own.


The workshop will be held in the GIS & Data Lab inside Rotch Library.
