MVRPC hosted its 2nd Introduction to ArcGIS Desktop training session on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at Wright State University’s GIS Lab. This was our second session at WSU's lab facility. Many thanks to the good people from WSU that helped make this happen.
We had 15 attendees, and we were pleased to meet many new GIS users.
The session was intended for first time GIS users and focused on hands-on learning on how to use ArcGIS Desktop software. MVRPC staff members served as instructors and each participant had an opportunity to learn how to symbolize GIS data and create a custom map using ArcGIS Desktop.
