Geog 9034: Developing Rich Internet Mapping Applications (2 days, 1.6 CEU)

With the advance of web mapping services and web technology, creating and publishing high-performing, modern-looking web maps has become easier and rich with options. This course teaches the basics of how to build attractive, sophisticated internet mapping applications using the lightweight, browser based ArcGIS Server JavaScript API. Topics include designing and publishing web mapping services using ArcGIS Server; consuming ArcGIS map services using the ArcGIS Server REST API and Dojo Javascript library; integrating functionality (queries, geoprocessing, etc.) for more interactive applications; and tools and techniques for rapid application development.

This course is geared toward GIS analysts and others who want to create rich internet mapping applications to publish GIS content throughout an organization or to the public via the Internet. Attendees do not need to be highly experienced programmers but a basic understanding of HTML and familiarity with JavaScript are recommended.
