Beginning 11 August 2021, GIS software provider Esri is offering a free six-week online course to explore imagery and remotely sensed data using its ArcGIS software. Focused on capturing, processing, visualising, analysing, and sharing imagery data, the course is open to anyone.

The massive open online course (MOOC) Imagery in Action provides an introduction to the latest workflows and ArcGIS capabilities that can make sense of an otherwise overwhelming amount of data.

The no-cost self-paced course will be available for six weeks on Esri’s training website. The course includes full access to ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Image Analyst, and ArcGIS Image for ArcGIS Online software. The training also includes video presentations by the company’s experts, discussion forums, and hands-on software exercises.

Each course section focuses on a specific topic and imagery application. Participants will explore a wide range of scenarios using realistic imagery and remotely sensed data, much of it from the collections available in ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World.

Imagery in Action is open to learners worldwide. You’ll need an ArcGIS account to attend (you can create on for free at A certificate of completion will be awarded to all participants who finish the course. Register here:
