Frequently, the natural resource data needed for a project (such as vegetation, species locations, or watersheds) does not exist. Or, the data may exist but significant manipulation is required before it can be displayed and used for analysis in a GIS. This four-module course teaches methods for acquiring, evaluating, creating, manipulating, and integrating data in preparation for analysis and map creation. Students learn tips for assembling a high-quality database, as well as best practice approaches to data problems commonly encountered by those in the natural resource and conservation fields. In a course project, students apply the skills they've learned throughout the course.

This course is designed for experienced ArcGIS users who want to create and integrate vector and raster data for conservation projects or other natural resource applications.


Students should have completed Learning ArcGIS Desktop and Working with Rasters in ArcGIS Desktop or have equivalent knowledge.
