Creating Python Scripts for ArcGIS Class Resources

This 3-day course teaches how to access the Python environment in ArcGIS Pro, script common data management tasks, and automate geoprocessing workflows. You'll learn techniques to share your scripts so they are easily accessible both inside and outside ArcGIS Pro. These resources are dynamic and will be updated as needed.



Lesson 1 - Python automation for your organization



Lesson 2 - Using geoprocessing tools in Python

Lesson 3 - Using Describe Objects

Lesson 4 - Automating Python Scripts with Lists


Lesson 5 - Working with Cursors

A new data access module (arcpy.da) was added in ArcGIS 10.1. The previously existing cursors (that are still listed under arcpy) are still functional and valid; however, the new arcpy.da cursors include significantly faster performance. In most cases, the help will illustrate the use of the arcpy.dacursors.


Lesson 6 - Working with Geometry objects


Lesson 7 - Using ArcGIS Notebooks


Lesson 8 - Creating a Python Script tool

Lesson 9 - Adding Validation to Script tools

Lesson 10 - Using Python script tools in the platform

Good stuff! Thanks.

Does this course primarily focus on arcpy or using the ArcGIS API for Python?

Hi Tommy,

It is a 3 Day course that focuses on arcpy and arcpy workflows.

The ArcGIS API for Python is not covered in this class.

Thanks for the question.

Wonderfull and congragulations, thank You very much.

Is there a way to get the training data? for the course for later use.

@Srinivasa_MurthyNemani When you register for the class, you will be given access to the exercise data and workbook on the My Schedule page ( three business days prior to the class start date. If you've already taken the class and your link to the course materials has expired, you can reach out to your instructor to request access to the data.
