Whilst some people may enjoy the security of knowing that they have done something before and can therefore do it again, others find this work boring and unchallenging. Perhaps you have a repetitive task that is part of your work day routine, something you have done so many times you can allow your mind to wander and focus on more important things like what you’re having for dinner. Personally I dislike repetitive tasks about as much as repetitive music.
So in the interest of working smarter … I will be presenting a Tips & Tricks session at the Sydney Directions 2015 showing users how to automate workflows using ArcGIS Desktop Model Builder. For those who have not used Model Builder before you will see both how easy it can be to graphically create a model to automate your ArcGIS business processes, as well as how powerful using a model can be.
