Comprehensive ArcGIS Guides
  • ArcGIS 10.1 Help - the online Help for ArcGIS - somewhat superior to the version that comes with the software as it is updated as needed and it highlights some of the most frequently needed tasks
  • ArcGIS 10.1 tutorials - useful for understanding different functions and processes
  • ESRI Support Center - For the experienced ArcGIS user, this is THE place to find answers to your questions - type in a question or search terms, and the site searches ESRI user forums, Help pages, technical papers, and user-written scripts for ArcGIS (to track responses, create an ESRI Global Account - it's free)
  • Harvard Graduate School of Design - GIS Manual - excellent guide to various GIS topics and problems.
