    Default Where to start?

    I am inrested in learning how to use the ArcGIS system but I have never used this system before and I was told I should get a ESRI certification on it.
    What classes do I start with and about how long do you think it will take to learn. I am very good with computers and do some programing so I am a quick learner with computer base software. If you can send me a link or something that would be great.

    I would start with the free courses at this site http://training.esri.com/gateway/index.cfm first and then decide from there what you want to do next.

    Hi Zodeac,

    I just wanted to suggest one more workbook from Esri Press that's more recent:

    Understanding GIS: An ArcGIS Project Workbook

    Hope this helps,

    Cool Re: Where to start?

    Hi Zodeac,

    In addition to the resources listed above, there's a free web course called Getting Started with GIS. Here's the link - http://training.esri.com/gateway/ind...&courseid=1911

    Hope this helps.

    Default Re: Where to start?

    In my case, I am interested in 3D visualisation landscapes and digital terrain modeling. I was asking google for educational material or trainings but with less success. As far as I know, ArcScene and ArcGlobe is used for this purposes, but working in ArcScene is the scale I need.
    Does anyone know about any material that covers one or more of the following topics:
    create 3D landscape visualisations on local and regional scale,
    working with Sketchup or other 3D modelling software alongside ArcGIS,
    rendering from ArcScene (?)

    Maybe I am just not aware of the matching keywords or vocabulary what I am looking for...

    Any help is welcome!

    FYI, some Esri related training on this topic:

    thank you for the clarification. I was uncertain whether I need those courses for my goals or not.
