ArcGIS software offers many tools for visualizing, creating, man- aging, and analyzing geographic data. In this course, students extend their ArcGIS skills in the areas of cartography, data auto- mation and editing, and geoprocessing and spatial analysis. Stu- dents work with advanced cartographic tools as they learn how to efficiently create effective maps. A major focus of the course is the geodatabase. Students learn database design considerations and techniques for creating, maintaining, and managing GIS data stored in a geodatabase. The ArcGIS geoprocessing tools for spa- tial analysis are also covered and, in a course project, students apply many of their newly acquired skills.
