Esri Press Publishes Python Scripting for ArcGIS

Redlands, Calif., Jan. 9, 2013—Python Scripting for ArcGIS is a technical guide that provides a clear, step-by-step process for the creation of Python scripts to enhance ArcGIS 10.1 capabilities.

"Python scripting is a fundamental tool for GIS professionals to extend the functionality of ArcGIS and automate workflows," says author Paul A. Zandbergen. "You can use it to modify the existing capabilities of ArcGIS and create new ones."

Python Scripting for ArcGIS is a guide for experienced users of ArcGIS and students that are interested in learning how to create Python scripts. No previous programming experience is necessary. Each chapter in the book has a corresponding exercise on the accompanying DVD, and a free 180-day trial of ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop is included.

Python is the scripting language of choice for ArcGIS users because of these characteristics:

  • Simple and easy to learn
  • Free and open source
  • Cross-platform compatible
  • Interpreted, not compiled
  • Object oriented

Zandbergen is an associate professor of geography at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque where he teaches classes in GIS and spatial analysis. His areas of expertise include GIS applications in criminology, economics, health, and ecology, as well as spatial and statistical analysis techniques using GIS.

Python Scripting for ArcGIS (ISBN: 978-1-58948-282-1, 368 pages, US$79.95) is available at online retailers worldwide, at esri.com/esripress, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
