GIS Quick Reference Card

This quick reference card was originally prepared for the 2006 ESRI User Conference. It has undergone several revisions since then. We received a lot of positive feedback and provide this now as a PDF for anyone using GIS. The card includes:

  • Geographic Conversions from Minute/Second to Decimal Degree fractions
  • Optional Distance Units (ArcGIS specific)
  • Common Unit Conversions
  • Direction Systems and Degree Formats (ArcGIS Specific)
  • US Public Land Survey System Meridians
  • Townships, Section, and aliquot subdivisions
  • Common Data Types support by ArcGIS
  • Common VBA Operators and Functions
  • Common Map Scales and Equivalents
  • US State Plane Zone (NAD83)
  • US UTM Zones

The PDF size is 19.5 by 9 inches, so it doesn’t really fit nicely on standard printers but fits on tabloid. The final folded size is 6.5 x 9 inches.

We had several ESRI staff mention that ESRI should make something similar to this for ArcGIS. It looks like they did. ESRI has their ArcGIS specific version “ArcGIS Desktop Tips“.
