With ModelBuilder, you can automate workflows in ArcGIS without writing code! By graphically connecting tools together, and connecting those tools to input datasets, you can create your own custom workflows (your own tools) in ArcToolbox. From repetitive data loading (i.e. loading new competitor data once a month) to complex analysis (site investigation studies and play assessments), geoscientists and geoscience technicians are using ModelBuilder to help them in their daily tasks.
This course teaches you the basics of building models and handling data in ModelBuilder, then shows you how to take your models to the next level by including variables and looping constructs. For example, you can build a model that automatically renames all of the feature classes in a particular geodatabase or one that loops through all of the unique values in an attribute table.
