You'll learn just enough Python scripting to work with the ArcPY module. You will learn to use commands for both vector and raster data processing. We will focus on using Python to automate map making. With the ArcPy mapping module you can easily create and update map layers and content to create customized maps that can be exported for presentations and reports. Whether you need to create 10 or 1000 maps, you'll learn how to save time by using Python. Prerequisite: a basic knowledge of ArcMap, including analysis tools including Clip and Buffer and with Model Builder.
