May Tutorials Highlight Python Scripting and Imagery Management
Redlands, California — May 11, 2010 — ESRI's popular live training seminar series is featuring two ArcGIS 10 tutorials this month. Using Python in ArcGIS Desktop 10 will air on Thursday, May 13, at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. PDT. Managing Imagery with ArcGIS 10 will air on Thursday, May 20, at the same times. Attendees can access both seminars at www.esri.com/lts.
The May 13 seminar will introduce Python scripting and its ability to automate common geographic information system (GIS) tasks and create tools with advanced geoprocessing capabilities, thereby increasing productivity. The use of Python scripting can also improve the quality of map documents, particularly when creating maps and related layers in the new ArcGIS 10 mapping module. In addition, Python helps ArcGIS users develop both simple and complex workflows quickly and easily. The seminar will demonstrate how to integrate the new ArcGIS for Python window and ArcGIS Field Calculator into workflows.
In the May 20 imagery management seminar, attendees will learn about the Mosaic Dataset in ArcGIS 10, a new geodatabase data model that can be used to efficiently manage and serve imagery and raster data. The seminar will also introduce new tools and recommended workflows for managing large collections of imagery and raster files. Using imagery is important for many GIS applications, but it's challenging to manage and disseminate large collections of data. The Mosaic Dataset in ArcGIS 10 makes those tasks easier.
A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Global Account are needed to participate in the training seminars. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit www.esri.com/lts, click login, and register your name and address. A few weeks after the live presentation, this seminar will be archived and available for viewing on the ESRI Training Web site.
