Learn the basics of ArcGIS Pro as we navigate our way through this new interface. The modern look of ArcGIS Pro can be intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be. This class will include a general overview that will familiarize you with Pro. We will show you how to work with maps and interact with layers. With practical examples, we will demonstrate working with data. Finally we will explore the many improvements ArcGIS Pro has when creating layouts.

This class will be held in a computer lab, so participants do not need to provide their own laptops.

As the day progresses, we will delve deeper into creating code that works in the various profiles (Labeling, Popups, and Visualization), or parts of the ArcGIS platform that can consume Arcade.
