ArcGIS provides a scalable framework for implementing GIS solutions for a single user or multi users on desktops, servers, over the web, & in the field. It’s a the leading software for developing both web and mobile GIS applications & also provides a backbone for web maps and applications. 

This course is a practical, easy-to-follow & complete guide to which gives you deep insight into ArcGIS from developing to maintenance. It starts with guiding you to work with the basics of coordinate systems and map projections, as well as vector overlays in ArcMap. You will then learn to add intuitive geographic layers of information to your map, interactive query and display of spatial data, add user interface widgets, access geoprocessing tasks, and much more in your own web and mobile GIS applications. Next you will be introduced to access & view services via the ArcGIS REST services directory, Server Manager, and ArcCatalog.  Finally you will be addressed to some common issues that arise with installing & administering your server & publishing your services along with maintaining, troubleshooting, & fine-tuning your ArcGIS Server & services and automate server management tasks.

By the end of this course you will have deep knowledge of working with different types of data for modelling your maps in ArcGIS & build your very first custom application• You will also have deep knowledge of maintaining, troubleshooting, and fine-tuning your ArcGIS Server and services and automate server management tasks

Contents and Overview

This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

The first course,  The Ins and Outs of ArcGIS Data Analysis start by learning how to analyze spatial data in ArcGIS Desktop. You will learn to work with the basics of coordinate systems and map projections, as well as vector overlays in ArcMap. Next, you will learn how to create your own data sets. At times you will come across the need to work with datasets that do not already exist in online dictionaries. You will learn how to make new datasets and edit them as well as geo referencing existing datasets in ArcMap. Finally you will be taught how to model continuous phenomena or land use by using raster data. You will learn how to work with raster data in ArcMap, as well as functions for modeling landscape characteristics and land use change. By the end of this video tutorial, you will know how to work with different types of data for modeling your maps in ArcGIS.

In the second course,  Building ArcGIS Cross-Platform Applications with JavaScript you will learn to add intuitive geographic layers of information to your map, interactive query and display of spatial data, add user interface widgets, access geoprocessing tasks, and much more in your own web and mobile GIS applications.With this course, you will be able to develop fully-functional online GIS applications with ArcGIS Server using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, which has been updated to 4.x. After creating your own map, you will explore how to add geographic layers from a variety of sources including tiled and dynamic map services, add graphics to the map, and stream geographic features to the browser using a FeatureLayer. You will also learn how to work with 3D maps, perform client-side analysis, visualizations, etc.Most applications include the specific functionalities implemented by ArcGIS Server as tasks. You’ll learn how to use the various tasks provided by ArcGIS Server including spatial and attribute queries, identification of features, finding features by attribute, and more. Geocoding and geoprocessing tasks are covered in-depth to help you accomplish your task in GIS.Finally, you’ll learn just how easy it is to integrate ArcGIS .com content into your custom developed applications by building a complete app.

In the third course,  Publish, Manage, and Consume Services Using ArcGIS Server you will learn how to publish dynamic and cached map services, an editable feature service, a feature service with a related table, a WMS and WFS, and a KML service. In the second section of this course, viewers will learn how to access and view services via the ArcGIS REST services directory, Server Manager, and ArcCatalog. In the last section of this course, viewers will learn how to use other mapping APIs to add ArcGIS REST services to a web map. Viewers will be able to publish a variety of service types to ArcGIS Server and add them to web maps using both the ArcGIS platform and third-party APIs.

In the fourth course,  Maintaining, Troubleshooting, Automating in ArcGIS Server will instruct viewers how to deploy ArcGIS Server, publish and consume services via ArcGIS and third-party platforms. It starts with optimizing and monitoring the services. After that, you’ll learn how to configure a secure environment and control who has access to your services. In the third section, you’ll understand how to automate common server administration and data management tasks using the ArcGIS REST API, ArcPy and command line utilities. in the last section of this course, address some common issues that arise with installing and administering your server and publishing your services. This series instructs viewers how to maintain, troubleshoot, and fine-tune your ArcGIS Server and services and automate server management tasks.

His work has been featured in venues such as CityLab, Boston .com, and FiveThirtyEight, along with a wide variety of academic journals. He is based in Fort Worth, Texas.

  • Rene Rubalcava has been in the field of GIS for 15 years and using ArcGIS products for just as long. He has been building custom ArcGIS applications for the desktop and browsers for 10 years. He is currently a software engineer at Esri working on the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, and before that worked in local government and freelance work. He keeps current on almost all mapping technologies, from web-based mapping tools to desktop data creation tools. He is also a huge fan of functional languages such as Haskell, Elm and PureScript. He has experience in .NET using C#. Python, and some C++. He knows web technology, such as CSS, HTML5, plenty of JavaScript, multiple JavaScript frameworks, libraries and Node.

  • Steph A. Nelson is the Data Analytics and Strategy Manager at SFMTA and has architected, configured, and currently, maintains its ArcSDE enterprise geodatabase (Oracle DBMS) and ArcGIS Server map and feature services. She has 10 years’ experience delivering customized GIS solutions and previously authored a GIS video course for Planetizen. Her skills from her prior experience as a trainer and educator will serve her well as she designs and delivers the curriculum for Mastering ArcGIS Server Administration courses.

How long do I have access to the course materials?
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Can I take my courses with me wherever I go?
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
