Introduction to Python for ArcGIS

When? 19 Mar 2018, 15:00 to 17:45

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of automating your GIS workflows using Python with ESRI’s ArcPy library. We will cover how to use standard ArcGIS tools in your scripts, as well as writing and re-using custom functions. Working with sample raster and vector datasets, the workshop will show how to use ArcPy both in standalone scripts (.py files written by hand) as well as ArcMap’s built-in interactive Python console.

Prerequisites? Knowledge from workshop “Introduction to Python” or equivalent – a basic understanding of Python syntax and structures is assumed.

Costs? McGill students: free of charge, McGill other: $ 50, external: $ 100 (priority given to McGill community)
