Python I
9:00 am - 10:30 am
<br><b>Introduction to Python</br></b>

Title: Python I

Description: The Python I workshop will introduce the basics of the Python language and teach you how you can use the Python language to efficiently geoprocess multiple datasets using the Python Window in ArcMap/ArcGIS Pro, he Python Interactive Shell as well as Python scripts. We will cover listing data, basic selections using Python and SQL, and running the basic geoprocessing tools like Clip, Append, Merge, Intersect, Union and the like. We will also cover arcpy Search and Update Cursors.

Special Requirements: A few laptops will be provided. Bring one if you are able.

Presenter: Brian Gelder


Presenter Bio: Brian is a Scientist II and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Iowa State University in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering. He does research on estimating soil erosion across large areas using models by developing automated methods for hydrologic enforcement of elevation models and remote sensing methods for determining residue cover and tillage practices. He also teaches classes in Community and Regional Planning on GIS Programming and Automation using Python and Fundamentals of Remote Sensing and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst.

Title: Python II

Workshop Description: The Python II workshop assumes you have already covered the material in the Python I workshop and takes you further down the rabbit hole. This workshop will teach you how to convert scipts into toolboxes that you can share with your friends, use ESRI Spatial Analyst tools as raster analsysis is a bit different than vector analysis in arcpy, batch process map creation from templates, and use Insert Cursors to create point and polygon files from point data.

Special Requirements: A few laptops will be provided. Bring one if you are able.
