NW5 - Introduction to ArcGIS Pro Python Tools and Processes Development (Half-Day) Workshop
Sunday, October 2, 2022 - 1:00 - 5:00 PM
Instructor: David Howes, Ph.D., Geospatial Information Scientist & Owner, David Howes, LLC, Seattle, WA

ArcGIS Pro is a powerful GIS desktop application in which great things can be accomplished using the out-of-the-box user interface options. Users can accomplish significantly more, however, and make the most of their ArcGIS investment, by using Python to perform GIS operations and streamline workflows. For this reason, Python experience is almost always a key consideration in GIS-related hiring decisions.
This workshop focuses on extending the capabilities of ArcGIS Pro via standalone scripts and tools that can operate within ArcGIS Pro or externally.

Three topics will be covered:
  1. An overview of using Python with ArcGIS Pro
  2. Developing and running Python scripts
  3. Creating and using geoprocessing tools. JetBrains PyCharm Community Edition, a rich, powerful, and free Integrated Development Environment (IDE), will be used for all coding activities.

Intended Audience: GIS professionals familiar with ArcGIS Pro and Python and wishing to develop GIS tools and processes.

Prerequisite Requirement: Anyone wishing to attend this workshop must also attend the associated workshop, "Introduction to Python Programming" (which is being presented in the morning session). An exception to this requirement will be made if the instructor is satisfied that your level of Python experience is such that attending the introductory workshop is not necessary. If required, please contact the instructor to request a waiver.

Format and Technical Requirements: The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Attendees must bring their own laptop and instructions for setting up the required software will be provided prior to the workshop.

Class Size: Limited to 50 students.

Cost: $165 if registered for the full conference.

Full Registration includes one full or half-day URISA workshop (normally $200); and the opportunity to register for one of the free half-day NWGIS courses (NW 2, 4, 7, or 10). There is no limit to the number of NWGIS fee-based courses you can register for, as long as there are no schedule conflicts.
