Description: This 3-day hands-on class introduces participants to the environmental applications of ESRI's ArcGIS 9 software. Beginning with a
discussion of general concepts and vocabulary, the course will move into teaching basic ArcGIS 9 functionality. Each participant will have their
own computer workstation to create, edit, display and analyze real world environmental data during numerous hands-on exercises. On the third
day, participants will be given an opportunity to become more proficient with their skills by applying their knowledge to more complex and in-
depth projects.
