I'm studying Geographic Information Systems (primarily using ArcInfo) and am required to take a programming course.
The choices at my junior college ar Visual Basic, Java and C/C++.
I am utterly ignorant about all of these. (I noticed that ArcInfo uses Python for scripts, but it's not offered at my school.)
Can anyone offer some insight as to which of these options would be a) easiest for a novice to learn, and/or b) most useful for GIS applications?
Thanks for any help.
