GIS stands for Geographic Information System. It is composed of hardware, software, people, environment, and data. Therefore, students with different backgrounds can learn and use GIS. The purpose of this course is to convey a concept to students that adding a 3D GIS map to web for your clients is not difficult. You can spend your minimum time to handle it.
After completing this course and the exercises, you will be able to:
This is a course introduction.
This lecture covers the process of signing up ArcGIS Developers Account and creating a 2D webmap at ArcGIS online.
This lecture covers the process of generating a 3D webmap without coding at ArcGIS Online.
This lecture covers the process of changing a basemap and set the default map properties.
This lecture covers the process of adding a camera view position.
This lecture covers the process of adding a basemap toggle widget on the map.

I am going to dedicate some of my time to be a GIS instrcutor here and teaching is fun. It is also great to let many mobile and web developers to know and use ESRI technology which is so far the best and the most comprehensive GIS system. The part I am giving lectures is even only a very small fraction of the whole ArcGIS system.
Coding is boundless. Like many other teachers, I’d like to share my knowledge and experiences here. As the students are from all levels, I try not to make the code complicated. Maybe sometimes my pace is a bit slower, but I tried to make the code effective in a straightforward and simplest way. So that students can understand the mechanism of the code easily.
