GIS II: Running ArcMap with Keyboard Shortcuts

This hands-on workshop will show attendees how to perform basic functions in ArcMap without using the mouse (most of the time), i.e. by the use of keyboard shortcuts. Attendees should be familiar with geospatial data and comfortable working in ArcGIS. Participants will be introduced to shortcuts or hot keys that are more efficient and ergonomic ways for regular users of ArcGIS software to effectively use this application, where intensive use of the computer mouse is often required.
