Geoprocessing is an essential aspect of GIS that provides the ability to analyze and process geographic data. ArcGIS ModelGuilder provides a graphical modeling framework for designing and implementing groprocessing models that can include system tools, scripts, other models, and data that are linked together to form an analysis or processing workflow. Because ModelBuilder uses a graphical interface that is integrated with ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcToolbox, users can create models without the need of learning a programming language.
This course introduces students to ModelBuilder and how to create automated routines and workflows. Learn to create, use and share interactive models within the ArcGIS platform. Learn to document models so others can use them for their purposes. Finally, leanr how models can be exported as images or python scripts.
