Migrating from ArcView GIS 3.x to ArcView 9

Two days
2005 Course Schedule


This new two-day course introduces ArcView GIS 3.x users to the features and architecture of ArcGIS 9. Students learn how to use the new Windows-based applications—ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox—and explore how these applications work together. Students gain a basic understanding of ArcGIS and the experience they need to enroll in many other ESRI courses including Introduction to ArcGIS II (for ArcGIS, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo) . Participants learn how ArcView GIS 3.x terminology and features relate to the new terminology and features of ArcGIS. They also learn how to create, edit, and georeference spatial data, as well as manipulate tabular data, query a GIS database, perform spatial analysis, and present data clearly and efficiently using maps and graphs. Many of the topics covered in this course are similar to those in Introduction to ArcGIS I (for ArcGIS, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo) . Attendees who complete this course should not enroll in Introduction to ArcGIS I (for ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo) .


Migrating from ArcView GIS 3.x to ArcGIS is for ArcView GIS 3.x users who want to learn ArcGIS.
