Advanced ArcInfo using ARC, ArcPlot, and ArcEdit: The course focused on ARC,
ArcPlot, ArcEdit, and ArcTools applications. Techniques, ArcInfo commands, and
ArcTools to manage and relate tabular data, model linear and complex area data,
create map products, enhance editing sessions, use defined layers, and work with

Programming ArcInfo with AML: Wrote simple AML programs, progressing to larger
utilities of moderate complexity.

Introduction to ArcView: Used ArcView to create, edit, display, query, and analyze
geographic and tabular data and create presentation-quality maps and charts.
