In any GIS environment, custom models can be powerful tools, and they can dramatically reduce or eliminate repetitive tasks. This workshop introduces ModelBuilder in ArcGIS Pro, provides examples of when and why GIS automation is useful, and demonstrates step-by-step how to create models capable of simple or complex processing. We will create, test, save, and share custom tools that automate vector and raster data processing. This workshop will also demonstrate batch-processing (e.g. reproject 150 .shp files with one click) that eliminates repetitive work. This workshop is designed for GIS practitioners, students, and individuals with an introductory understanding of geographic information systems. In this hands-on workshop, we will use ArcGIS Pro, so please download, install, and test ArcGIS Pro on your machine prior to the event.

ISSR is pleased to co-sponsor this workshop of the UMass Amherst Libraries. Contact John Slaff ( for further information.
