Introduction to Surface Modeling Using ArcGIS 10
- Format: Web Course
- Duration: 1 module (3 hours)
- Price: $32 USD
- ArcGIS Version: 10.0
- Authored by Esri
This course teaches techniques to create raster surfaces that model continuous phenomena—things that have no discrete boundaries, such as precipitation, temperature, water flow, pollution, elevation, and population density. By interpolating, or predicting, unknown values based on sample data, you can model dynamic environmental phenomena, monitor changing conditions across a surface, and analyze hot spots and distribution patterns within an area of interest.
Who Should Attend
GIS analysts and specialists, epidemiologists, crime analysts, market analysts, economic forecasters, and other researchers and professionals working in industries such as public health, public safety, hydrology, meteorology, agriculture, environmental management, and mining.
Learn How To
- Describe characteristics of a good sample set, given a particular study area and phenomenon.
- Choose an appropriate interpolation method for your data.
- Set different interpolation parameters to manipulate surface characteristics.
- Interpolate a surface to visualize the distribution pattern of a given variable.
- Create a hydrologically correct surface.
- Create density surfaces to visualize the concentration of a phenomenon per unit of area.
