Complete ArcGIS 10 Desktop Extension Tutorials

To work through the ArcGIS Desktop tutorials, you need to install the tutorial data from the ArcGIS Desktop Tutorial Data setup, which is part of the ArcGIS Desktop installation download or media. If the tutorial data has been installed on your system, look for it in C:\arcgis\ArcTutor (the default installation location). In many cases, you will need write access to that location to perform the tutorial.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to drape images and features over a terrain surface, extrude points and polygons, interpolate a surface from points, build a TIN and a terrain dataset from features, create an animation, and navigate in ArcScene and ArcGlobe.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to generate vector data from rasters, including how to use the cell selection and raster snapping tools, perform simple raster editing and automatic vectorization, and interactively trace raster cells.

3. Data Interoperability

In this tutorial, you will learn how to directly read and analyze the additional data formats supported by Data Interoperability; translate data between various formats using Quick Import and Quick Export tools; transform data schemas using Custom Import, Custom Export, and Custom Formats; and incorporate all these functions into your geoprocessing models.

4. Geostatistical Analyst

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to represent and explore data and detect trends and directional influences, perform diagnostic tests, evaluate and model spatial autocorrelation, build interpolation models using ordinary and indicator kriging, compare the results of these models, and create maps using the output surfaces.

5. Maplex for ArcGIS

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to design and create publication-quality cartographic labels for maps using the Maplex for ArcGIS extension.

6. Network Analyst

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create network datasets and use them to find routes, find closest features on a network, calculate service areas and origin-destination cost matrices, solve location-allocation and vehicle routing problems, and build a model for route analysis.

7. Schematics

networks intended to explain their structure and make the way they operate understandable. The Schematics configuration tutorials focus on Schematics configuration using Schematic Dataset Editor.

8. Spatial Analyst

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to prepare, query, and analyze both feature and raster data. You will perform a suitability analysis and a cost distance analysis and make a site selection.

9. Tracking Analyst

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how ArcGIS Tracking Analyst can be used to analyze the movement of hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean. The tutorial will introduce you to several features Tracking Analyst provides for symbolizing, visualizing, and analyzing temporal data.
