ArcGIS Desktop and the KnowGIS Training Course:
ArcGIS is a system used to facilitate geographic information system (GIS) activities. It was developed by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI). ArcGIS Desktop is a part of ArcGIS. With ArcGIS for Desktop, users can analyse spatial data, display geographic data, examine relationships, perform spatial analysis, test predictions, and make informed decisions. ArcGIS Desktop is available in three license levels—Basic, Standard, or Advanced (formerly known as ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo, respectively). The same core applications and interface are shared between the three license level.

The KnowGIS Training Course introduces fundamental concepts of GIS and covers the major functionality contained within ArcGIS Desktop. In the KnowGIS course exercises, you will watch and learn how to use important aspects of the software. You can follow along with the process and work with the included GIS data. The KnowGIS course emphasizes practical GIS software skills, beginner topics, all the way to more advanced topics. You will learn the modules of ArcGIS Desktop and perform important GIS tasks and workflows.

By the end of the KnowGIS course, you will understand the range of ArcGIS Desktop's functionality and you will be prepared and ready to work with the software on your own. You will be able to create new GIS data, develop your own Geodatabase - including feature datasets and feature classes, register and rectify images and vector data, digitize points, lines, and polygons, edit existing data, create GIS maps, work with spatial data, and perform GIS analysis.
