Working with ArcGIS

Developed by Dr. Amy Hiller of the Penn School of Design for training undergraduate and graduate students in introductory Arc GIS, this manual is meant to be a complement, rather than substitute, for ArcView software manuals, ESRI training products, or the ArcView help options. Particularly helpful to people new to GIS who may be intimidated by conventional software manuals, this manual focuses on the basic tools and functions that users new to GIS should konw how to use. Those who master these basic functions shoulud have the skills to learn about additional tools, using the ArcView help menus, or just exploring additional menu options, toolbars and buttons. This manual is used for teaching people in the social sciences and public health including Robert Wood Johnson clinical scholars and for Penn's GIS and Public Health Institute that is offered ever summer.
