A Learn Lesson is a step-by-step tutorial that uses a real-world scenario to introduce key ArcGIS tools and workflows. Here's a roundup of new lessons in the Learn ArcGIS Gallery that have appeared in the last month.

 

utility mapValidate edits in the utility network with attribute rules (ArcGIS Pro)

In this project, your role is as a GIS Analyst who has started working with an organisations electric utility network in ArcGIS Pro. Over the past few months, you've noticed certain irregularities with edits made to the peak load attributes of services in the network while performing regular QA/QC processes. After discussing the problem with your colleagues, you've decided to implement new attribute rules to prevent certain types of edits and to create a log that can be shared for monitoring and analysis of the edits made to the features.

 

 

 

map with image in pop-upMap the highest mountains

A web map can include descriptive information about features in a pop-up. The information that appears when a feature is clicked can include text, images, and links to web pages. As a map maker, you decide what information to include and how to present it. In this lesson, you'll create a .csv file with data about five of the highest mountains in the world. You'll use the file to create a layer on a map. Then, you'll customize the layer's pop-ups so that when you click a mountain feature, you will see key information and a photo of the mountain.

This lesson, adapted from one developed for middle and high school students, is making its debut in the Learn Gallery. You can find it and others like it by searching the tag "teachgis" in the Gallery search bar.
