Tune In to a Free Live Training Seminar about Using Templates to Improve Mapmaking Skills
Redlands, California—June 10, 2009—ESRI now offers map templates as a new resource to help ArcGIS software users make great-looking, professional-quality maps for print, the Web, and mobile applications.
Getting Started with Map Templates, a live training seminar airing at www.esri.com/lts on Thursday, June 25, 2009, will walk geographic information system (GIS) professionals and cartographers through the process of working with the templates. The times will be 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific daylight time).
Mapmaking is an art that requires skill and, often, a lot of experience. But making high-grade maps will be much easier when using the cartography and data designs from these templates with your organization's geographic information. The templates, created by ESRI's cartographers, include examples of map documents, data models, and geoprocessing tools. Each template is a complete solution for a given type of map.
The seminar's presenter will explain how to get started using the templates and how to adapt the cartographic and data designs to other maps.
Attendees will also learn about
- How to download map templates from the ESRI Resource Center at http://resources.esri.com/maptemplates
- What the map template kits contain
- How to use data with a map template
- Different kinds of map templates (e.g., street, topographic, and local government maps)
- Publishing map templates as mapping services via ArcGIS Online
Mapmakers from any organization who want to create professional-grade maps will find this live training seminar interesting and useful. GIS professionals and cartographers who are familiar with ArcGIS Desktop software and make maps on a regular basis will benefit.
A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Global Account are needed to watch the seminar. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit www.esri.com/lts, click Login, and register your name and address.
