University of Arkansas Libraries ArcGIS Desktop Tutorial (http://libinfo.uark.edu/gis/tutorial.asp) Section 1 Page 1 Section 1: Getting Started with ArcGIS Desktop v.9 ArcInfo™ Functional Level (ArcCatalog™, ArcMap, and ArcToolbox™) ArcGIS Applications Description: ArcCatalog: ArcCatalog™ allows the user to easily access and manage geographic data that is stored in folders on local disks or relational databases that are available on the user's network. Data can be copied, moved, deleted, and quickly viewed before it is added to a map. In addition, metadata can be either read or created using this ArcGIS application. ArcMap: ArcMap allows the user to display and query maps, create quality hardcopy maps and perform many spatial analysis tasks. ArcMap provides an easy transition from viewing a map to editing its spatial features. ArcToolbox™: ArcToolbox™ provides an environment for performing geoprocessing operations (i.e., operations that involve alteration or information extraction). Tools step the user through the many geoprocessing tasks. ArcToolbox is embedded in both ArcCatalog and ArcMap. Data Retrieval: Data collection and preparation is one of the most expensive and time consuming aspects of creating a GIS facility. There are many governmental and commercial data sources that provide digital and tabular data sets as well as analogue data including maps, aerial photographs, and satellite imagery. ArcGIS Supported Data Formats: ArcGIS allows the user to work with an extensive array of data sources. These are listed below. Data Types Supported in ArcGIS (ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo) o ArcIMS feature services o ArcIMS map services o ArcInfo coverages o DGN (through v8) o DWG (through v2004) o DXF o Geodatabases o Geography Network connections o OLE DB Tables o PC ARC/INFO coverages o Raster Formats
