This three-day Python course covers all the fundamentals of the python programming language as well as its use in a GIS environment through the use of the ArcPy GIS library. The course shows you how Python scripting allows you to automate workflows and manipulate and change ArcGIS Pro projects and layers; how its flexibility and fully functional scripting language helps you take your use of ArcGIS Pro to the next level by improving efficiencies and optimising processes.
You will learn: the basics of the Python language; the skills to leverage ArcPy and the Python scripting language to perform and automate Geoprocessing tasks in ArcGIS Pro; to use ArcPy to automate data processing and analysis tasks; how map related tasks can be automated with python scripts with applications for bulk map production, map packaging and data migration using ArcPy.mapping.
Course is designed for regular ArcMap users looking to migrate to ArcGIS Pro. If you are new to ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro we recommend the two-day ArcGIS Pro Foundations course.
