GIS Tutorials and Resources

The Data Services staff has compiled a collection of tutorials and other training resources for performing common spatial tasks with popular GIS applications.  Please explore the collections below:

You can also find many tutorials, videos, and web courses through the Esri Training Catalog. Many of those materials are free for all users while some items require a login (the catalog will list the cost as "Requires Maintenance").  If you would like to view these items, you will need to join our ArcGIS Online Organization, see the instructions on this page.  Members of the WashU community also receive a 40% discount on instructor-led training options.  Please contact Bill Winston for information on obtaining this discount.
