If you are learning GIS by using the lessons and exercises in the "Understanding GIS: An ArcGIS Project Workbook" then this discussion forum is for you.  Welcome!

For many years, users of Esri's GIS and mapping products and technologies have found these discussion forums to be a great way to connect, share, and learn with others around the globe.   Likewise, the "Understanding GIS" series of books have been a great way for many thousands of people to explore the power of GIS.  These tools help us better model and visualize our surroundings spatially.  Better map data plus better analytical tools equals better decisions for improving how we interact with our world.

As you come across questions or have comments about the Workbook, or questions about the GIS concepts in general as you are learning them, post them as new threads here.  Or if you see other questions and comments, feel free to jump in and share what you think.  Others who are using the Workbook will jump in and do the same.  Esri Staff will also watch this forum to see how we can help.  Let's learn together!
