  Duration: 3 days (24 hours)


  Overview
  This three-day course offers participants in-depth instruction in ArcView GIS 3.x software’s ability to
  integrate geographic information. Attendees move beyond the basics as they perform GIS analysis
  using the software’s total functionality including new geoprocessing tools and projection utility. The
  course helps participants become more productive ArcView GIS users by teaching them advanced
  topics such as using sample scripts and extensions, converting themes into new map projections, and
  making projects portable. Realistic class projects and challenging hands-on exercises let participants
  immediately apply their newly acquired skills.


  Those completing this course will be able to:
  •        Align spatial data in views
  •        Obtain spatial and tabular data
  •        Manage data
  •        Create portable projects
  •        Present data through reports, layouts, or dynamic presentations
  •        Use Avenue programming language to increase effi ciency
  •        Use sample scripts and extensions
  •        Perform advanced spatial functions (intersect, clip, and overlay)
  •        Implement spatial models


  Who should attend?
  Advanced ArcView GIS (3.x) is for experienced ArcView GIS users who want to learn about the
  advanced features of ArcView GIS that will make them more productive and allow them to get the
  most out of the software.


  Topics covered:
