    This four-session course covers the map-making aspects of ArcGIS Desktop and introduces its analytical functionality. Powerful and relatively complex, Desktop is the industry standard for geographic information systems (GIS) software. ArcGIS Explorer is designed to store, query, analyse, process, and visualise spatial data. It is typically used for making maps and performing spatial analysis.

    ArcGIS Explorer is a free, basic and easy-to-use geographic information system (GIS). GIS is used for making maps and performing spatial queries and analysis. While the functionality of Explorer is very limited, and probably inadequate for many university-level users, it is taught here as an important stepping stone to the more complex and powerful ArcGIS Desktop.

    This session covers intermediate-level skills in working in ArcGIS Explorer. Explorer is a basic and easy-to-use desktop geographic information system (GIS) that is free to download. It is part of the ArcGIS software range, which also includes web-based and mobile GIS, as well as the much more powerful ArcGIS Desktop. GIS is designed to store, query, analyse, process, and visualise spatial data. It is typically used for making maps and performing spatial analysis.

    This session covers techniques for working with raster imagery, such as printed or scanned maps or aerial photography. The relationship between image (i.e. pixel) coordinates and geographic coordinates will be explained, and students will be shown how to 'geo-reference' raster images. The session will also cover several approaches to extracting spatial data from raster images. Finally, the session will cover how an image processor (e.g. Photoshop, PaintShop Pro) can be used to prepare rasters for display in GIS.
