Learning ArcGIS Pro 3: Converting, Linking & Analyzing Data  

November 17 – December 17

**This class will not meet on November 24 or 26**

Students are required to meet with the instructor online on Tuesday & Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Central Standard Time.

This 16-hour class builds on the previous two courses and covers advanced data concepts. Students will learn how to convert data from various formats such as CAD or Shapefiles to Geodatabase feature classes. They will also learn how to link data using joins, relates and relationship classes. Students will then explore how to use topologies to edit and validate GIS data to ensure it is clean as well as how to create and edit 3D data. From there students explore more advanced types of spatial analysis.

Topics Covered

    1. Linking Data with Joins, Relates and Relationship Classes

    2. Validating and editing data using topologies
