I’ll be teaching an 8 hour seminar style class titled Creating a GIS Website using ArcGIS Viewer for Flex on Friday, May 13th. The class will focus on manipulating XML files to quickly get a GIS web application deployed. We will also discuss differences between GIS for paper and web mediums as well as an introduction to server technologies.
This class is just one of the great opportunities being offered as part of the FREE! Friday GIS Workshops at Mt. San Jacinto College. The classes covers a wide range of topics from introduction and technical classes to industry specific GIS applications and integration with other systems.
Considering it is an advanced class, I have received a few questions about what knowledge is needed to take the class. The ArcGIS Viewer for Flex lowers the barrier to entry to quickly deploy a map to the web. It does not require any programming, but it does mean students should be familiar with GIS concepts so they can be applied in a server environment. Below is a link to a 16 minute video which covers many of the concepts in the class. We will go into more detail, but if you can follow along with the video you should be fine.
