Introduction to ESRI’s ArcView 9.x: Software Skills.
This course introduces the desktop ArcGIS package, ArcView 9.x. This course will introduce students to GIS and familiarize students with the basic software skills needed to operate the ArcMap application of ArcView. Students will learn to dynamically view and work with geographic data to answer spatial questions and create professional maps. Emphasis is put on repetition and independent, realistic exercise assignments to reinforce basic software skills and provide a solid foundation for future experience with GIS environments.
Like the courses in our ArcView 3.x series, this course is 10 weeks in length and is available for 3 undergraduate or graduate credits (optional). The course was designed primarily for K-12 school teachers but is open to and will benefit a wide variety of people. This course is the first in a series of three; the intermediate and advanced ArcView 9.x courses are still being developed and will be available as they are completed. Once a student completes all three courses, as in our ArcView 3.x series, a GIS Certificate from The University of Montana will be awarded.
Each class is instructor led – not self-paced and lasts ten weeks. There are assignments due each week of the course. Class size is limited, so participants have the opportunity for ample interaction with the instructor and other students. The courses are 100% online — you can participate and complete them from anywhere in the world.
Course dates are January 27th – April 6th, 2006 (with a final project due two weeks after the course end date). Cost is $500 for educators and $600 for non-educators with an additional $115 fee if 3 credits (graduate or undergraduate) are desired.
