Going to ArcGIS Pro in 2020? KCGIS has the 2019 year-end class for you!

What’s in a picture? Things are changing in Seattle! The viaduct served us well for many years, but it is gone. The Waterfront Tunnel is open and traffic is humming. New Link Light Rail extensions are snaking up to Northgate and across Lake Washington to Mercer Island, Bellevue, and beyond. These are the new transportation routes of our future.

ArcGIS Desktop has served us well, but now there is a new route to the future of your GIS career: ArcGIS Pro.

With fast processing, enhanced 3D capabilities, and a new intuitive interface, ArcGIS Pro, Esri’s next-generation GIS software, promises a wealth of potential for experienced GIS users. King County GIS Training has a class designed to help users get up and running in Pro as quickly as possible.

ArcGIS Pro Quickstart will help you become familiar with the new project structure, understand the intuitive and dynamic interface structure, and learn how to do all of your favorite tasks in a whole new way.

If you are comfortable with ArcGIS Desktop and want to learn how to incorporate ArcGIS Pro as part of your overall GIS arsenal, register today! This two-day class will be held December 10-11 in our newly upgraded downtown Seattle GIS training facility.

Register today while seats are still available!
