This 1-day course focusses on the vast array of wizard driven tools available in ArcToolbox. Participants will perform a variety of geoprocessing tasks such as clipping, buffering, dissolving and intersecting, as well as employing other tools such as data conversion tools, coordinate system tools and data management tools.

You will learn about the advanced features provided by ArcGIS to query data,  to construct complex SQL query statements to interrogate attribute information, and to use the powerful Select by Location function to perform spatial queries.
