There are many definition of GIS, however the most widely used is the one depicted below. I like this definition due to its simplicity but also because it allows to quickly explain what are the main components of a GIS and to point out the implications that each component has in the success of a GIS deployment.
The image define GIS by its five principal components: data, software, procedures, hardware and the most important one, the user, the group of people that have the knowledge and expertise to operate the system to support the organization’s operations and to adapt it when changes in the business needs occur.
In response to the growing demand in providing education and training to interested users around Esri’s cutting edge 3D software tool CityEngine, Esri Australia’s training team has recently developed a new training course- CityEngine 2014.
This training course has been designed to provide students who are about to begin constructing realistic models of 3D cities with some foundational knowledge of how CityEngine works, and how to use it to create models, import GIS data and publish their results on ArcGIS Online.
The CityEngine 2014 training course will also be of interest to those who are already CityEngine users, and have made their first steps in navigating this advanced 3D modelling software, guided by Esri Inc’s tutorials and exercises.
Learning how to complete your ArcGIS Geoprocessing steps using Python will allow you to reduce the time spent on complex and/or repetitive tasks and will enable your staff to learn a more productive and dynamic pathway to return results.
