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.
