Introduction to Esri Production Mapping

Strictly by pre-registration only

What is this course about?

Learn how to configure and use the Esri Production Mapping extension and enhance productivity by standardizing feature collection, editing, and data management. This course teaches how to find, track, and correct spatial and attribute errors in GIS data using ArcGIS Data Reviewer for Desktop. You will also work with the Esri Production Mapping cartographic tools to create standard map products and manage production in the product library. Using ArcGIS Workflow Manager, you will learn how to streamline your repeatable production tasks.
