Half Day, Afternoon: Getting Started with ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud
Attendee requirements: Bring your own laptop and any necessary adaptors/ connectors for accessing hard wired internet connection. Adobe Illustrator CC or Photoshop CC latest versions should be installed on your laptop and a valid Adobe ID.
Many cartographers use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to beautify their maps. Esri's new plugin - ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud - provides a simple integration enabling cartographers and designers, to bring valuable GIS maps and layers into Adobe's design space. In this workshop we will show how this app works, right from ingesting local and cloud-based content, to visualizing the data and plugging in design assets for a speedy cartographic workflow. We will share what's available with the free vs paid versions and examine its utility for your current or prospective ArcGIS configurations.
Half Day, Morning: How to analyze and visualize spatial data with CARTO BUILDER
Attendee requirements: Laptop
This workshop will introduce the analytic and cartographic capabilities inside CARTO BUILDER, exposing the power of connected and dynamic workflows. Participants will learn about drag and drop analytics, their link to interactive and dynamic filters called widgets, cartographic styling, and a series of tips and tricks for customizing your location intelligence application.
