The first of three courses in the ArcGIS Desktop Foundational Training Curriculum, this course teaches the fundamental concepts and basic functions of a GIS, the properties of GIS maps, and the structure of a GIS database. In course exercises, you will develop basic software skills by working with ArcGIS Desktop tools to visualize geographic data, create maps, query a GIS database, and analyze data using common analysis tools. This course is geared towards individuals with little or no prior GIS experience, who would like to learn how GIS can fit into their organization. Click to view contents of the class.
Goals For ArcGIS I:
This course introduces the fundamental concepts of ArcGIS Desktop software and teaches how to use it to visualize, create, manage, and analyze geographic data. In course exercises, you will use ArcGIS tools to perform common GIS tasks and workflows. By the end of the course, you will understand the range of ArcGIS Desktop functionality and be prepared to work with the software on your own to create GIS maps, work with geographic data, and perform GIS analysis. This course is geared towards those with a working knowledge of GIS but no experience with the ArcGIS software. Students should have completed ArcGIS I or have equivalent knowledge.

Goals For ArcGIS II:
During a three day training session Trimble GPS data collection hardware and software will be used to support the USAF.
IGI&S mission and certify proficiency of all attendees in:
Other Areas of Data Capture Include:
This experience will encompass both field and lab work along with multiple opportunities for each attendee to collect and produce post-process compliant datasets.
Our students go from the classroom to outdoor training of GIS and GPS principles with our exciting Applied Practices program. We offer individual as well as team-building activities that reinforce GIS and GPS skill sets. Improve your company's understanding of GIS principles with these activities:
If you'd prefer to apply the training to your own location, Spatial Technologies can set up training on your location or facility. Your class will get applied practices training in mapping your own location so that it provides intimate knowledge of your own GIS commercial enterprise spatial data mapping project needs. This also provides you with a head start on your own data tracking as well as getting your team involved in immediate needs you may have. Also, having our instructor at your location allows us to provide key insight consulting about your specific project and best practices that may be unique to your company.
CIPS (Cyber Space Infrastructure Planning System) thick client, developed under contract by the U.S. Air Force is an ArcGIS extension specifically to convert CSIR drawings to the Communications Mission Dataset (CMDS). This ArcGIS extension is deployed within the 45th Space Wing and other installations as the GIMS (Geographic Information Management System). Spatial Technologies teaches the Communications Visualization Toolkit course that covers end-to-end Outside Cable Plant Management.
From manhole and vault inspection to CSIR drawing conversion, the development of the digital / georeferenced Mission Dataset overlay to the CIP is the objective of the course.
Who should take this course? Outside Plant Technicians, Communications Engineers, Maintenance Schedulers, GIS Managers
