Trying to figure out how to use ArcGIS Online? eGIS Associates releases two classes that will help

Dacula, Georgia, April 2, 2015 – The need to organize, visualize, analyze and share Geospatial data is growing at an ever increasing rate, but the cost of developing and deploying enterprise, mobile and web GIS solutions has prohibited many in the past. Esri's cloud-based mapping solution, ArcGIS Online provides a cost effective and robust platform for sharing geospatial data with users both inside and outside of your organization.

“ArcGIS Online provides even the smallest organization with an inexpensive tool for sharing GIS content such as maps, data and applications. However for those not familiar with publishing and working with web or cloud based tools, it can seem a bit daunting” says Tripp Corbin, CEO of eGIS Associates. He continues by adding “ArcGIS Online has its own terminology and workflows which new users must learn to successfully make use of this amazing tool from Esri. So we have developed two new classes to help.”

eGIS Associates has just released two new ArcGIS Online classes, Introduction to ArcGIS Online: Creating Content and Intermediate ArcGIS Online: Sharing & Managing. These classes provide new ArcGIS Online users with a much greater understanding of how ArcGIS Online works and what can be done with it.
