Presentation and tutorials about using Python with ArcGIS 10. Topics covered include scripting geoprocessing workflows, batch processing, reading and creating data, raster analysis with the ArcPy Spatial Analyst module, map automation with the ArcPy Mapping module, and creating script tools.

In addition to the main presentation pdf, each of the six exercises has a folder containing an instructions document and the data needed to complete the exercise.


  • Great! This seems much more informative than the resources I found through Google and exercises are exactly the sort of thing I needed – GISKid Aug 19 '14 at 19:03
