List of Arcview tutorials maintained by the University of California at Berkeley.
From the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Geographic Information System Library
- GIS Basics
- As with any system of knowledge, understanding the logic in which a systems stands facilitates its use for complex questions. The GIS Basics tutorials are meant to give those new to GIS and understanding of the foundations of these systems.
- What IS GIS ? (zip file)
PowerPoint presentation explaining basic GIS terms and theories.
- Linking Tables to Geographic Boundaries
Create tables from space delimited text files.
Link Census data to census boundary files.
- ESRI Virtual Campus
- The MIT Community can take some of ESRI's Virtual Campus classes free of charge. Please contact the GIS Specialist (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in taking one of these classes.
- GIS Software and Hardware Training
- In order to ask questions of spatial data it is important to grasp an understanding of software products that facilitate spatially oriented questions. Mastering these products helps to expand ones understanding of the types of spatial questions that can be explored.

GIS Analysis with Arc-Info by Shane Murnion
From Tony Soeller at the Caltech GIS Laboratory
- What is a GIS?
- A description of GIS technology.
- Procedures for creating ArcInfo project directories
- Guidelines for creating project directories and README files for ArcInfo projects.
- Procedures for drafting maps for subsequent ArcInfo (ArcScan) scanning
- Guidelines for drafting geologic maps onto mylar for subsequent scanning within ArcInfo using the ArcScan module.
- How to make an ArcInfo vector coverage using a scanned image and ArcScan
- Steps used to set up the vector tracing operation that allows you to extract (trace) lines from an grid and store the lines as arcs in a coverage.
- Procedures for displaying grid lines in cyan under your trace coverage
- This technique shows how to change the color of grid lines (for easier viewing) that are being vectorized using the "tr add" function within ArcScan.
- How to digitize, project, and attribute map features using ArcInfo
- Steps used to digitize features on maps and convert them into ArcInfo coverages. Includes instructions on projecting the data and adding attributes to the coverage.
- How to generate a coverage of lines and add line feature attributes to the coverage.
- Procedure for generating a coverage of lines and attributing each line feature with associated data from an ASCII file.
- How to construct and mosaic grids using 1:250,000 DEM data
- Steps used to access DEM data, construct grids in ArcInfo using the DEM data, build mosaics using adjacent DEM grids, and project DEM grids from decimal-seconds to decimal-degrees.
- How to convert GTOPO30 data into an ArcInfo grid
- Steps used to access DEM data, construct grids in ArcInfo using the DEM data, build mosaics using adjacent DEM grids, and project DEM grids from decimal-seconds to decimal-degrees
