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.

Build an app to expand food access (ArcGIS Online)


You are part of a community advocacy group that wants to create an app to show how farmers markets are located in the District of Columbia in relation to other grocery and food retail stores, as well as the poverty status and racial and ethnic composition of the community. You have a meeting with a District farmers' market co-op. You want to present an app that can be used to provide decision support to farmers market managers looking to increase the number of markets for which public assistance benefits such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and WIC (the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) are accepted.

Measure and visualize digital exclusion (ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online)


Are there race groups that are more digitally excluded than others in the United States? After performing the data analysis in ArcGIS Pro, you will build a web app to share your findings. This lesson provides a conceptual framework for applying geospatial technology to study socioeconomic indicators through the lens of racial equity. 


Create and use a mosaic dataset (ArcGIS Pro)


In this lesson, you'll focus on the management and storage of large volumes of imagery and remote sensing data in ArcGIS Pro. You will explore the challenges of working with multiple images individually and create a mosaic dataset that will allow you to work with the collection of seamless images, making them accessible and turning them into useful information products for both visualization and analysis. Next, you will enhance the mosaic dataset by applying and incorporating analysis functionality and, finally, add and use a catalog of imagery from an ArcGIS Living Atlas mosaic dataset.



Design a layout for a thematic map (ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS Experience Builder)


Maps usually include titles, legends, and other information to help explain them. Just like in a print map, a clear layout design for an online map helps people understand what the map aims to communicate. You've designed a map of languages in India to celebrate International Mother Language Day and will design a layout to help it tell its story.


Measure global hunger (ArcGIS Online)


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger aims to end hunger and ensure access by all people, especially people in vulnerable situations, to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food all year round by 2030. In this lesson, you'll use United Nations Sustainable Development Goals data to compare hunger in the forms of undernourishment and food insecurity for the world's population.


Crowdsource student hangouts (ArcGIS Online)


As part of a class group representing the youth in your area, you're interested in learning what facilities are available to you around your school. Are there parks, play areas, sport facilities, and indoor entertainment venues? Can these facilities be used during the day and after dark? Do people feel safe in these areas? Are they actually used? Do the facilities in the area suit the people who live there? Can these facilities be accessed by walking from school? You'll create a survey, collect data and analyze the results.

Extract 3D buildings from lidar data (ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension)


Tuborg Havn is a newly redeveloped mixed-use neighborhood in Copenhagen, Denmark. The City of Copenhagen wants a 3D model of the buildings in the neighborhood to use in further urban planning activities, flood prediction analysis, shadow impact analyses, viewshed and line of sight analyses, and more. As a remote sensing analyst for the city, you'll use lidar point cloud data in ArcGIS Pro to extract the 3D representation. You'll create and classify a LAS dataset, extract a digital elevation model (DEM) and 2D building footprints, and generate 3D multipatch buildings.




New Learn Paths

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

Try ArcGIS for Power BI (ArcGIS for Power BI)


Create interactive maps that highlight patterns in your data.







Working with spatiotemporal data in ArcGIS Pro Intelligence (ArcGIS Pro Intelligence)


Using, analyzing, and visualizing activity in both space and time.







Try the Insights scripting environment (ArcGIS Insights)


Use the Insights scripting environment for data engineering and to extend your analysis with Python and R.






Use ArcGIS Insights for public safety (ArcGIS Insights)


Learn how to use Insights for public safety and emergency response.
