This video course is a walkthrough guide of the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) ArcGIS 10.x software.

ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps and geographic information. It is used for creating and using maps, compiling geographic data, analyzing mapped information, sharing and discovering geographic information, using maps and geographic information This video course is structured in a way to get easily familiar with Planning a Site Suitability Analysis. Free vector and raster data are being used during the entire course. Just follow the steps described in each video course and you will solve location allocation model in a fraction of time!
