Course Description

This course will take you from a beginner in ArcGIS, from downloading data, to performing basic functions. Alonso will teach you the basic concepts, how to perform the main features in the GIS software, use the geoprocessing tools, how to export to AutoCAD, while on the hydrology side Konrad will teach you how to perform hydrology related tasks such as Calculate flow direction and Flow accumulation, watershed delineation, Stream segments and catchments areas, Spatial join to catchments as well as map layout with elements. Work side-by-side with the presentation and feel free to ask questions when you don't understand something. This tool is highly looked after in the hydrological field.
