New Learn Lessons
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.
Create a web scene to support construction planning (ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online)

In this lesson, as the GIS data manager for the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands, you will build a 3D scene representing the Rotterdam city center. First, you'll create an empty local scene in the Netherlands national coordinate system in ArcGIS Pro. Then, you'll add a basemap, elevation information, and features, such as buildings, bridges, trees, and street lamps. Finally, you'll publish the scene to ArcGIS Online. By the end of the lesson, the scene will be ready to use as a web-browser accessible backdrop to visualize any newly planned construction project.


Find ocean bathymetry data (ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online)

In this lesson you are a student at the beginning stages of a research project studying the ocean floor off the East Coast of the United States. Before you can begin your analysis, you need to compile data. You'll visit a variety of online data portals to find different bathymetric datasets. You'll add this data to an ArcGIS Pro project both as services and as downloaded files.

When you're done you'll have an ArcGIS Pro project set up with useful datasets for the rest of your research. Along the way, you'll learn where and how to acquire bathymetry data, different data types used in oceanography, and how to add them to maps in ArcGIS Pro.

Get started with notebooks in ArcGIS Pro (ArcGIS Pro)

Python scripting can be used to automate workflows in ArcGIS Pro. Notebooks, included with ArcGIS Pro, are a good environment for writing Python code. In this lesson, you will write code to find areas with low access to fire department services. You will learn some of the basics of Python syntax. Code written in a notebook can be exported to a Python script, which be opened, modified, and run outside of ArcGIS Pro.


Visualize an ocean canyon in 2D and 3D (ArcGIS Pro)

In this lesson, you'll gain skills creating maps and making measurements of bathymetric terrain in both 2D and 3D. You'll also create and export a short animation of the canyon.


Build an interactive dashboard (ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Dashboards)

As electric vehicles become more popular, knowing where charging stations are is important. Having sufficient access to stations can help make the decision to shift to an electric vehicle easier. It's also important to know that you can rely on access to stations when traveling. When it comes to finding charging stations, you don't need to see every location, only the ones that are relevant to your location and your vehicle. You'll configure the dashboard so users can filter the data to the province, city, and connector type that they need.



New Learn Paths

A Learn Path is sequenced set of resources for learning about a particular topic. Here's a roundup of some new paths in the Learn ArcGIS Gallery that have appeared in the last month. 

Try ArcGIS Image for ArcGIS Online (ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Image for ArcGIS Online)
