The GIS team provides access to the suite of ArcGIS software, group training for researchers at all levels, and personalized research consultations.

Training Options for Every Learning Style

GIS staff provide workshops on the Homewood campus and on the East Baltimore campus in association with the Welch Medical Library‘s regularly offered classes. Check the calendar for dates.

If you don’t find exactly what you are looking for, contact us so we can tailor a training for you or your class.

Web-Based Training

Johns Hopkins users can request authorization to take web courses at no cost via ESRI’s Self-Paced E-Learning. (ESRI’s “Instructor-Led” courses and “Books” are not included in our subscription.)

Classroom Training

GIS staff offer customized classroom instruction sessions so that faculty can focus their efforts on the way they use GIS rather than the “how to” of the various GIS tools.

Research Consultations

GIS staff provide individual and group consultations and can help you find the best tools and resources to fit your research needs.

ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS Pro is ESRI’s newest, 64-bit addition to the ArcGIS collection of desktop software. It features greater 3D visualization and enhanced integration with ArcGIS Online. Those new to GIS desktop software will likely want to start their GIS learning with ArcGIS Pro. Check the system requirements before downloading ArcGIS Pro.
