easy to follow; great for beginners of VBA or ArcObjects! This book teaches you the core of what you need to know to get around in VBA and ArcObjects. I had already read the Sam's VB 6 in 21 Days book, but the VBA section helped reinforce what I had already learned, and most importantly, taught me how to understand and use ArcObjects, even the Object Model Diagrams, which is really important for a beginner to grasp.This is a great tutorial and reference to have for anyone with no computer programming background, because it really teaches. William F. Goedecke III said Excellent introduction to ArcObjects. Even though this book was written for an earlier version of ArcGIS, it does not seem to matter. The beginning of the book is very basic, but I grew to appreciate that the author took a very thorough approach. ArcObjects are fairly complex, so having pretty straightforward programming methodology is helpful. The most clearly written programming book I have ever read.. "Review of Getting to Know ARC OBJECTS" according to Glynis Ford. This book exceeded my expectations as a beginner. It is simple to follow yet stimulating enough to maintain my interest. Persons without experience and needing to do customization will find this extremely useful. Recommended for young entrants in the field of GIS who are focused on application development.
Also stressed are the use of Visual Basic for Applications and the use of ArcObjects to modify the ArcGIS interface, change its basic operations, and create entirely new functionality. ArcGIS is the newest and most powerful GIS technology from ESRI, and this comprehensive reference teaches Geographic Information System (GIS) technology users the concepts and methods for its customization. As ArcObjects are the building blocks of COM-based ArcGIS software, GIS professionals are given an introduction to basic object-oriented programming concepts and the classes, properties, and methods that make ArcObjects unique. Included are two large-scale, fold-up object diagrams.
