“The success of this series of books and software is great. This learning tool is valuable and can help a company or department learn and try the software before they invest in it. It is highly recommended,”
This workbook introduces the principles of GIS via hands-on exercises. Readers are shown how to use ArcGIS for Desktop software tools to display and present maps and data, and then query and analyze the data. The third edition has been reorganized and includes new topics such as exploring online resources and raster data and contains new exercises, data, and learning tools.
Known for its broad scope, clarity, and reliability, Getting to Know ArcGIS for Desktop is equally well suited for classroom use, independent study, and as a reference. A data DVD for working through the exercises is included with the book, and access to a 180-day trial of ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop is provided.
Using this book and trial software is a great way to determine if it is a product that will aid in increasing productivity and achieving goals.
Some of the key features of ArcGIS Desktop that are highlighted in the Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop workbook include, spatial analysis, data management, mapping and visualization, map projections, geocoding, and advanced editing and customization.
Once users have completed the trial period and are ready to own ArcGIS , CMC Government Supply also offers single or concurrent user software licenses for ArcGIS for Desktop Basic and extensions for users to accomplish special tasks and analysis.
