Online: Web GIS Enabled Spatial Analysis & Data Science with ArcGIS

Course attendees get to know the spatial analysis framework within the ArcGIS platform for vector, point cloud, and raster data.

Using Esri’s ArcGIS Pro desktop app, spatial data science methods are applied for pattern detection and clustering, but also to make spatial data-based predictions. Participants are also introduced to a modern Web GIS implementation pattern, the new paradigm of how people can share, find, and use geographic information via a geospatial cloud.


  • Basic understanding of GIS and GIS data

The course is carried out as a remote course via Zoom. The course includes also practical exercises done with ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online. For that participants should have locally installed ArcGIS Pro with Spatial Analyst, Image Analyst, Network and 3D Analyst enabled to own laptop or PC. Also participants should preferably have accounts to home organizations ArcGIS Online. If needed also temporary ArcGIS Online accounts are available, please inform, if you need this.

Several Finnish universities have comprehensive ArcGIS licenses, inc ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online, via universities ArcGIS software consortium organized by CSC. More information about participating universities and available licenses can be found here.

Originally we planned the course as a one-day event, but for the remote course we divided it into two days with teaching only in the morning session: 9-12:15.

Practically it would be very good to have 2 screens for the course, one for following the instructions from Zoom and the other for working with the exercise.

Lecturer: Aki Kaapro, ESRI Finland
