Internet Seminar Explores What's New in ESRI's Latest Software Release, ArcGIS Desktop 9.2

Redlands, California - ESRI software users can familiarize themselves with the new and improved tools and capabilities of ArcGIS Desktop 9.2, such as zooming, managing data, and creating graphs during an upcoming live training seminar on the Web.

What's New in ArcGIS Desktop at 9.2, which showcases upgrades included with the new ESRI software, will air live over the Internet on August 31, 2006, at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight time).

ESRI Educational Services instructor Bronwyn Agrios will discuss and demonstrate additions and improvements in mapping, cartography, and tables as well as provide tips and tricks for people who will use ArcGIS Desktop 9.2. This will be the first in a series of informative seminars about the new software, which is scheduled for release later this year.

Some key points Agrios will cover include

Agrios will explain the new ways to navigate ArcMap, investigate map data, and save favorite spatial elements. She will also familiarize the audience with the new tools for working with tables and labels and annotation, the editing features, and creating graphs with the new graph engine. Online viewers will be introduced to new cartographic representations in ArcGIS 9.2 and shown how they can be used in map production.

Although the seminar is available to anyone, viewers of this technical seminar should be familiar with working in the ArcGIS 9.x environment including understanding how to navigate the ArcMap interface, create symbols for data, work with tables and labels, and use ArcCatalog to manage geographic information system (GIS) data.

A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Global Account are needed to watch the seminar. Creating a global account is easy, and free, it only takes a few minutes to set up.

After the live presentation, the seminar will be archived and available to see anytime on the ESRI Training and Education Web site.
