If you are looking to grow your spatial data analysis skills, there are some great opportunities coming up. We have two free massive open online courses (MOOCs) taking place back-to-back in the coming months. The first MOOC will cover spatial analysis fundamentals and the second MOOC will take a deep dive into spatial data science.  

If you're interested in these topics but aren't sure whether one of these courses fits your existing skillset, go ahead and join and consume as much or as little of the course content as you like. There are no firm perquisites for attending a MOOC and there is no penalty for not completing the course—we simply want to provide the opportunity for you to keep growing your ArcGIS knowledge. 

Esri MOOCs are a fun, interactive way to learn the latest ArcGIS techniques and capabilities in a self-paced format. All MOOCs provide access to ArcGIS software for use in hands-on exercises, the opportunity to hear directly from top Esri experts in videos, and a certificate for course completion. 

Follow this two-step plan for the ultimate spatial learning experience. 


Step 1. Join Going Places with Spatial Analysis 

Going Places with Spatial Analysis opens September 22 and runs for six weeks. The course will cover spatial analysis tools, capabilities, and workflows. Explore how to leverage geospatial data to improve processes and make data-driven decisions. Work through real-world analysis scenarios and solve problems using ArcGIS Online.  

Registration for the 2021 Going Places with Spatial Analysis MOOC has closed. Join the waitlist to participate in the next course offering



Step 2. Join Spatial Data Science: The New Frontier in Analytics 

Spatial Data Science: The New Frontier in Analytics opens October 27 and runs for six weeks. Explore the latest ArcGIS capabilities for spatial analysis, predictive modeling, machine learning, and more. Try out powerful tools in ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Spatial Analyst, and ArcGIS Notebooks to extract deeper insight from data and communicate results using engaging maps and apps.  

Registration is open through November 10. Learn more and register. 


Have fun learning all things spatial data analysis. We’ll see you online!
