Automating Our Workflow Using Python: Focus on Reusable Code

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Much of what we do within a GIS on a day to day basis is detailed and repetitive. In many instances these procedures are complex and need to be performed by multiple people. In this workshop we will explore ways to automate your day to day workflow using Python and ArcGIS while focusing on creating reusable code. We will outline some basic object oriented programming concepts and explore ways to streamline GIS workflow. While a basic understanding of Python and ArcGIS are required to work through the examples, we will discuss coding and automation topics in a nontechnical manner so that anyone interested can participate. If you bring your own laptop please make sure you have ArcDesktop installed and a license (Python should be installed with ArcDesktop).
