    About Intro to Geoprocessing Scripts with Python

    Python is a general-purpose high-level programming language, designed to be easily read. Python is used as the primary ArcGIS scripting language to perform geoprocessing and map production tasks. This course introduces the Python scripting syntax and shows how to use scripts to access and automate geoprocessing tasks. You will also work with ArcPy, an Esri-developed site package for Python that integrates Python scripts into ArcGIS Desktop.

    • Day 1 (Monday) Topic: Intro to Python
    • Day 2 (Tuesday) Topic: Geoprocessing in Python
    • Day 3 (Wednesday) Topic: Map Automation using Python
    • Day 4 (Thursday) Topic: Data Editing with Python

    Additional Information

    INSTRUCTOR: Jamison Conley, WVU Professor of Geography

    COURSE PREREQUISITES: Must have prior ArcGIS experience. WVAGP courses GIS Foundations or Transition to ArcGIS Pro preferred. If you have never done any ArcGIS Python scripting, then you may find the free ESRI online courses Python for Everyone or Learn Python with ArcGIS Notebooks useful

    About Geostatistical Analysis

    Spatial statistics is a broad field of interpreting and analyzing geographic data. This workshop introduces you to three of the more commonly used analytical techniques: analysis of spatial autocorrelation, hot spot detection, and geographically weighted regression. We will use ArcGIS Pro for all exercises.
