GIS gives you an easy way to get access to the tremendous amounts of data available. At first glance, ArcGIS lets you see this data on a map. But underneath, the software has powerful tools for analyzing the data. With ArcGIS, you can quickly print a bubble map showing crime rates, evaluate parcel values across a city, plan a location to open a new branch of your business, or explore a site for potential environmental issues. This course helps you understand the types of data that ArcGIS supports, and how to manipulate the data. For example, you will learn how to connect to an Excel spreadsheet that has GPS location data in it. This class is the first step in learning to incorporate this valuable application into your daily workflows.

GIS gives you an easy way to get access to the tremendous amounts of data available, and with the advent of web-based GIS, creating and consuming maps is even simpler and more collaborative. At first glance, web GIS lets you see spatial data on a map. But underneath, it has powerful tools for analyzing the data. With ArcGIS Online® and Portal for ArcGIS®, you can quickly create a heat map showing crime rates, evaluate oil field productivity, plan shelters and triage centers for an emergency, or explore a site for potential environmental issues. The course will also introduce you to the new possibilities of a web GIS for collaboration and cooperation.

24 Hours, 2.4 CEUs
Wednesday-Friday, December 9-11, 8 AM - 5 PM

One of the things that makes ArcGIS so useful is the tremendous amount of data available to map and analyze. In this course, you will learn to find, connect to, create, manage, and analyze that data. You will learn to search government sites for available GIS data, import non-GIS data formats, and to connect your maps to non-spatial spreadsheets, database tables, and other file formats. For example, linking parcels to scanned documents like deeds, and attaching photographs to road hazard locations.

You will also learn to create, maintain, and manipulate your organizations internal data to keep the data relevant, up-to-date, and useful.

Finally, this course also teaches you how to present your GIS data, by focusing on map labeling techniques and layout skills.

From previous students...

“This program is crucial for anyone in the HR profession who would like to expand their current knowledge base and network with other HR professionals. The instructor was very well qualified to teach this course and I gained so much more from attending this seminar than expected.”      Rhonda Vidal, Human Resource Manager

“This is must training for all new folks to the human resource function. Not only do you learn the fundamentals of HR but you also get to learn from your peers the challenges they face. Very good chance you’ll have a different perspective and understanding of the human resource function within your organization.”     Peter Frank, Director of Finance

“The wealth of information covering compensation, benefits, employee development, and performance management was wonderful. Since my specialty area has always been in recruitment and placement, I had a hard time getting my supervisors to approve training outside that area. The SHRM Essentials program was a great way to gain education in other HR disciplines.”     LaShawn Douglas-Green, HR Specialist

New Students - Providing your SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER is Important

A Social Security Number (SSN) is required to identify student's permanent records. The Midland College registration system automatically encrypts a student’s social security number into a student identification number. The student ID is used for all internal printed material and provides additional protection of a students’ privacy.

Students are urged to become familiar with the Student ID Number and to use it when communicating with College offices. Students are requested to provide their SSN to the College for maintenance of their student records; it also allows the College to meet federal and state-reporting requirements.
