Esri's massive open online courses (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.
Spatial Data Science: The New Frontier in Analyticsopens 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. It's completely free.
If you're interested in spatial data science, but not sure if the course 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.
