This hands on exploration will show how Python can be used to automate processes in GIS software. The emphasis will be on Esri ArcMap Desktop, but other software will be discussed. The participants in this Exploratorium should be solid GIS users. Scripts will be provided as well as data so that the participants can continue the learning process after this four-hour event. The learner will be provided with the GeoTech Center complete course on Map Programming. The purpose of this event is not to make the learner an expert programmer but to see how processes can be automated in mapping software. Those in this workshop should complete the first two chapters in GeoTech Center Map Programming course prior to attending the session and this knowledge will be assumed.
