This comprehensive two-day training course is an introduction to the ArcGIS Pro desktop software, with a special focus on mining and exploration data.  The practical exercises will give you the skills to use the core functionality that ArcGIS Pro offers. The exercises will allow you to visualise your data in both 2D and 3D environments and use the tools to create your own data and maps. This course will give you a sound understanding of the basic concepts and workflows to create and work with geospatial data. See course dates below. 


No previous experience with ArcGIS Pro software is required. Experience with using Microsoft Windows is essential.
