Summary

These Core tutorials are intended to help you get started with ArcGIS 9.3.

Description

You can use the links below to open PDF versions of the tutorials, or to view animations based on the tutorials.

Getting Started: In this tutorial you'll see how to explore data with ArcCatalog, add data to ArcMap, explore and symbolize data on a map, add elements to a map layout, and print a map. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Animation in ArcMap: In this tutorial you’ll learn how to create temporal animations. You’ll play the animations in the ArcMap display and in a chart to show data changing through time. You’ll also learn how to export the animations to video. Click here for Video of Tutorial

ArcCatalog: In this tutorial you'll learn how to explore geographic data and its attributes, view and create metadata, modify data properties, add and delete attributes, and link geographic features to attributes stored in separate tables.

ArcMap: In this tutorial you'll learn how to display map features, add data to your map, edit geographic data, work with data tables, query and select geographic features, create a summary graph, and lay out and print a map.

ArcReader: In this tutorial you'll learn how to view, explore, and print published maps. Click here for Video of Tutorial

ArcSDE Database Servers: In this tutorial you will learn how to: add a database server and connect to it; add users and administer their permissions; create geodatabases and add data to them; administer database servers. Database servers are used to store, access, and administer ArcSDE Personal and Workgroup geodatabases. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Building Geodatabases: In this tutorial you'll learn to build geodatabases that include relationship classes, subtypes, attribute domains, topology, geometric networks, feature-linked annotation, and dimension features. An ArcEditor or ArcInfo license is required to complete the tutorial. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Editing GIS Features: In this tutorial you'll learn the basics of the editing environment in ArcMap including creating new geographic data and input features using a digitizer; editing topological features; updating attributes to geographic and tabular data; performing spatial adjustments on your data; and creating and editing annotation. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Editing Geodatabases: In this tutorial you'll be introduced to advanced geodatabase concepts such as relationship classes, subtypes, attribute domains, topology, geometric networks, feature-linked annotation, and dimension features in the context of editing a sample geodatabase. An ArcEditor or ArcInfo license is required to complete the tutorial. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Geocoding: In this tutorial you'll learn how to create and managing address locators and how to use them to find the location of an individual address or table of addresses. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Geoprocessing: In this tutorial you'll learn how to create new information by processing existing data with geoprocessing tools. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Linear Referencing: In this tutorial you'll learn how to create, manage, display, query, and analyze data whose relative position has been modeled along a linear feature. Click here for Video of Tutorial

Representations: In this tutorial, you will be introduced to representations which allow you to symbolize geographic features with a set of rules that are stored with your data in the geodatabase. Representation rules can create and draw dynamic geometry that differs from the feature shape, allowing a complex depiction of features without impacting the spatial integrity of your data. Representations provide greater control over the precision and definition of the symbolization of your data. Click here for Video of Tutorial
