Watershed Analysis in GIS: A Spatial Workbook

About the Book

Update: December 2020. I expect to add ArcGIS Pro exercises during the first half of 2021 - all existing purchasers will receive these updates as well as anyone new. Thanks for your support!

A set of 8 exercises for working with water data in GIS, containing many new exercises I haven't published elsewhere - still a work in progress. Prior experience in GIS is assumed (see http://coursera.org/learn/gis for my courses that you can audit for free or take for a certificate).

You must have access to ArcGIS in order to use these exercises - all of the exercises are based on it, and you would have significant trouble trying to adapt them to another GIS software package. If you are lacking a license, but would like more introductory to intermediate experience in GIS, you can take my courses on Coursera (fully accessible for free if you audit them, or for a fee if you want a certificate) at http://coursera.org/learn/gis and you can obtain a license in those courses
