KnowGIS 10 series is a video-based training package for learning ArcGIS Desktop. It is an innovative, effective, humorous and a creative training course for learning ArcGIS Desktop. It offers a platform for being a productive ArcGIS Desktop user. ArcGIS is a system that manages data, mapping, globes and models on the desktop and serves them in a browser or on the field through mobile devices based on the organization's needs.
The motivation for creating KnowGIS came from an ArcGIS Desktop user who found that the options for learning were quite restricted. The user felt that there was a definite need for someone to create an intuitive video-based training series that does not depend on an internet connection for learning ArcGIS Desktop.
Global Positions LLC believes firmly that education and training are necessary for economic growth while they give impetus to our natural inclination for knowledge and wisdom. The Company feels that education is a basic human right that is essential for the exercising of all the other human rights. Mr. Folgert has stressed that it is critical for spatial problem solvers to have a universal access to affordable ArcGIS Desktop training.
KnowGIS 10 series is comprised of twelve lectures ranging from an introduction to geographic information systems with effective learning strategies up to exploring simple spatial analysis. The advantages of going through KnowGIS 10 are that it will equip the users with knowledge of ArcMap, Arc Catalog, Arc Toolbox and show them how these applications work in unison to analyze, display, organize and present geographic information assets. The participants will also learn how to organize spatial data, perform selections, update attribute tables, perform calculations using the field calculator, design a File Geodatabase, register and rectify raster images, create maps and charts and generate reports.
The idea behind this video-based training package is to make learning effective and fun. Every ArcGIS Desktop user can now learn and understand the key constituents of this powerful software by ESRI.
Global Positions LLC works closely with local governments applying GIS in the varied activities of county, city and state governments. It has worked on environmental projects with governments in the implementation of GIS for assessing and managing spatial information.
