Imagery Analysis in ArcGIS Pro

Strictly by pre-registration only

What is this course about?

Learn best practices and workflows to enhance visualization and extract meaningful information from satellite imagery, LiDAR, and other remotely sensed data. This course covers dynamic raster processing options available in ArcGIS and takes you on an in-depth exploration of image classification. You will use three classification methods to categorize land cover features and learn how to determine which method is appropriate for a given project and dataset.
