GIS Workshop – Intro to ModelBuilder I

GraphicOn Wednesday 6/22 starting at 10:30am will be part I of the Intro to ModelBuilder workshop. This will be a one hour hands-on workshop covering the basic concepts and best practices for working with ModelBuilder and how to create custom tools from models.

ModelBuilder is an application in ArcGIS used to create and edit models or workflows, stringing together geoprocessing tools. The models can either run in ModelBuilder, setup to run as a tool in ArcToolbox or even exported to a Python script.

All attendees must have some basic knowledge of ArcGIS, and at least know how to add data, save a project file (mxd), and access tools in ArcToolbox.
