Cutting-Edge Imagery Capabilities Free Online Course from ESRI

About the Course

This course is for anyone who wants to learn—or learn more—about the many uses of imagery, the many types of imagery, and the rapidly growing integration of imagery with GIS. Explore cutting-edge imagery applications and advanced tools to extract information from imagery and remotely sensed data. Course exercises guide you through the steps to tackle essential imagery workflows using the latest ArcGIS desktop and cloud-based apps.

Course Outcomes 

The massive open online course (MOOC) Imagery in Action provides a comprehensive introduction to the latest workflows and ArcGIS capabilities that can make sense of an otherwise overwhelming amount of data.

“ArcGIS has tools to help you find anomalies, explore trends, forecast, and perform predictive analysis,” said Vinay Viswambharan, product manager on Esri’s imagery and remote sensing team, who contributed his expertise to the course.

Those who enroll will discover how new tools and techniques for working with imagery data have vastly improved field data collection, asset inspection, change detection analysis, situational awareness, and more.

  • Experience with Windows-based software for basic file management and browsing is required.
  • Familiarity with GIS and ArcGIS will be helpful but is not required.

Esri provides free access to ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Image Analyst, ArcGIS Image for ArcGIS Online, and ArcGIS Drone2Map software during the course. To complete course exercises, you must use a machine that meets the ArcGIS Pro system requirements.

A broadband Internet connection and a web browser that allows access to PDF files and embedded video files are required. We recommend using the latest version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge.
