GeoMattix Offers New GIS Training Video Course for Excel Data

Excel Data to GIS Feature Class

Sedona, AZ, November 4, 2013:  GeoMattix is pleased to announce our latest GIS training video course.  ArcGIS Workflows: Excel Data to GIS Feature Class walks students through the entire process of turning Excel data into GIS features on a map using Esri’s ArcGIS for Desktop software.

The course covers the entire workflow:

  • Previewing and prepping Excel data for use in ArcGIS
  • Determining the correct coordinate system of your XY values
  • Using reference data and the right coordinate system in ArcMap
  • Displaying XY data and exporting it to a new GIS feature class

The training course also presents three common problems users often encounter when working with Excel data.  Special conversion formulas, tips, and tricks are presented and live-action demonstrations show how to apply them to solve common problems

  Excel spreadsheets are often used to store XY coordinates of points.  The data often have been collected in the field using a GPS unit.  While ArcGIS is able to read the Excel data, users must know how to properly plot the points and then turn the Excel data into GIS data – either as Shapefile or geodatabase feature class.

The new Excel Data to GIS Feature Class course is the second in our new ArcGIS Workflows series of training videos.  The series provides in-depth training for specific and common GIS tasks.  “Often these tasks involve many different tools scattered among various toolbars – each with specific input requirements and idiosyncrasies,” describes Michele Mattix, managing director of GeoMattix.   “The series provides GIS professionals and occasional users an efficient way to learn best practices, tips and tricks for specific workflows.”

ArcGIS Workflows: Excel Data to GIS Feature Class is available to purchase and watch online.
