Though ArcGIS 10.1 will be coming out very soon (It is moving from Beta to release candidate testing), many are just now migrating from 9.3 to 10. ArcGIS 10 represents the biggest change to ArcGIS since it was first released at least from an appearance and workflow standpoint. For example editing is completely different with the introduction of Feature Templates, the Create Features Window and revised Snapping Environment. Esri has also added additional functionality to the core product such as Data Driven Pages and Dynamic Text. With all these changes, transitioning to ArcGIS 10 is not as easy as it has been with past versions.
eGIS Associates is conducting an online session of our ArcGIS 10: What’s New course on February 16 from 8:30 to 4:30 Est. This one day course covers:
- General changes in ArcGIS 10
- Changes to the ArcMap Interface
- Editing in ArcGIS 10 with Feature Templates & the new snapping environment
- Creating Data Driven Pages and Using Dynamic Text
- Geocoding in ArcGIS 10
This course has been used by several organizations as a stepping stone to kick start their migration to ArcGIS 10 including Georgia Power, Columbus Georgia, Atlanta Watershed Management, Florence Co. SC, and the Suwannee River Water Management District in Florida. Here is some feedback from students that have attended this course:

“I am in the GIS learning process and this class provided great information. The instructor was well informed on each topic and the exercises were good to follow up.” – Martha L. Santana, GIS Planner, City of Columbus, GA
“We covered a lot of topics and learned about the new features in ArcGIS 10. It was a very helpful class and the instructor was very knowledgeable.” – Rosana Justel, City of Columbus, GA
The cost to attend this course is only $300.00. I will be the instructor. I am an Esri Certified Trainer with over 20 years of GIS, Mapping and surveying experience.
