Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API

Posted on June 10, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

GeoSpatial Training Services would like to announce the availability of a new series of instructor led courses offered through our Internet teaching platform.  

Our Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API Excellence Series is a series of 6 courses that will teach you how to build high performance, attractive Web mapping applications using the lightweight, browser based ArcGIS Server JavaScript API.  The Excellence Series is comprised of the following courses:

  1. Introduction to the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API
  2. Application Debugging with Firefox and Firebug
  3. Dojo + ArcGIS Server = Rapid Application Development
  4. Advanced Dojo Concepts
  5. Integrating ArcGIS Server with Google Maps
  6. Capstone Project

Dojo is a heavy focus throughout each of the courses.  So, what is Dojo and why should you use it?  Well, for starters, the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API is built on top of Dojo so you have to learn at least the basics of the Dojo framework if you’re planning to create web mapping applications with the JavaScript API.  However, Dojo is so much more!

In a nutshell, Dojo is a JavaScript framework that makes developing web applications much simpler and more efficient.  It takes care of all the little browser differences and inconsistencies that make deploying a production web application so difficult.  Dojo also comes with a large set of user interface widgets call Dijits.  These user interface components make it simple to build highly attractive web applications.  Dojo also has many other capabilities including the ability to access data stores (XML, JSON, Google Search, Google Images, Flickr, Amazon S3, and others), access web services including cross-domain capabilities with JSONP, a sophisticated loader and build system, and so much more!

Along the way you will acquire a lot of new skills that are in high demand.

  • How to program with JavaScript
  • Use the  ArcGIS Server JavaScript API to
    • Create Maps
    • Work with Map Layers
    • Create Graphics
    • Respond to Events
    • Perform Attribute and Spatial Queries
    • Find and Identify Features
    • Geocoding and Reverse Geocoding
    • Buffer Features
    • Access Geoprocessing Tasks and Models
    • Much More!
  • Use Dojo’s Dijits to build attractive user interfaces including Form controls, Grids, Charts, Trees, Lightboxes
  • Advanced Dojo concepts including reading data from XML and JSON files as well as other data stores such as Amazon S3 and Flickr
  • Debug your applications with Firefox and Firebug
  • Integrate your ArcGIS Server data with Google Maps

You can see the full syllabus here including an FAQ.
 
Class begins August 3rd and runs through September 11th.

Course price: $675 if you register before July 1st; $795 after July 1st

Wildfire Google Maps Mashup

Posted on June 10, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I wanted to let you know about a new Google Maps mashup that we created that enables you to follow live wildfire activity in North America.  In addition, it details specific information about the San Diego Witch Fire of 2007 and historical heat maps from 2001 onward.  This application, built with the Google Maps API and Dojo, receives live and static data feeds from a number of sources including:
For more information on the Google Maps API please see our “Introduction to the Google Maps API” e-learning course.
