Many geographic phenomena are best represented as rasters, but GIS users tend to be less familiar with this data model than with the vector data model. This course unlocks the mysteries of the raster. Students learn which types of geographic phenomena are appropriately represented as rasters and how the type of data affects raster analysis. In course exercises, students explore and work with a variety of raster datasets using core ArcGIS tools. Students gain experience displaying rasters and modifying their properties to aid visual interpretation.

This course is designed for experienced ArcGIS users who want to better understand and work with rasters. This course provides a foundation for more advanced work with rasters using the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst and ArcGIS 3D Analyst extensions.


Students should have completed Learning ArcGIS Desktop or have equivalent knowledge.
