Python for ArcGIS
This class is designed with a strong first-day focus on the basic elements of Python itself. There will be lots of hands-on participation, and opportunities to work exercises both individually and in groups. By the end of day one, we will arrive at using Python on the ArcGIS 10 command line, and in field calculations. On the second day we will focus much more on ESRI's "arcpy" module and its scripting potential. We will explore the creation of geoprocessing scripts, debugging, handling errors, mapping, and specific methods to access and modify GIS data and files. As on the first day, there will be lots of hands-on participation and exercises to reinforce the material. By the end of day two, we will be creating geoprocessing scripts from scratch and even wrapping them back into toolboxes..

BioBytes - Matthew started scientific programming in the 1990's in his studies of astronomy. Today, however, he's a little more down to earth and has practiced Python programming for GIS automation and/or research since 2006. He has taught eight Python workshops. And, he is currently teaching "Spatial Programming and GIS" at the University of Oklahoma. Matthew really enjoy sharing his knowledge of Python and learning more about this extraordinary language!
