GISL is a UK based consultancy company specializing in remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) applications. Since early 1993 GISL have been using ArcView on a number of projects worldwide and have assisted ESRI with the development of applications. GISL offers specialist training and applications-driven, information handling consultancy services in the geoscience and environmental sectors throughout the world. GISL is based in the UK with offices in Accra (Ghana) and Windhoek (Namibia). Training can be tailor-made to the requirements of the client or to cover the following:
2-3 days, covers basic use of the product for general GIS, data integration (including raster), import, export, hardcopy production and map composition using examples. This course offers new users of ArcView hands-on training covering the main features the product offers.
(All courses are conducted in a facility that allows hands-on use of the product with no more than two trainees per workstation. Trainees receive a ``workbook'' that contains topic/concept overviews and hands-on exercises. The workbook will reference example datasets included on the ESRI CD-ROM so the exercises can be repeated at any time after training.)
1 day, unwrap the new functionality available in ArcGIS 9 including the new geoprocessing environment, enhancements to the geodatabase, and the new functionality found in various ArcGIS software extensions. The first half of this course focuses on the geoprocessing environment and the hundreds of new tools available to users. Participants learn how to access these tools in a variety of ways such as through models, scripts, and a new command line environment. Enhancements to the geodatabase, such as XML import/export and the ability to store raster data, are discussed. The ArcGIS 3D Analyst and Maplex for ArcGIS extensions, showcasing the new three-dimensional symbols and ArcGlobe and labelling enhancements, are also discussed.
