Data types can be mixed within a single list. Data pieces within a list are separated by commas. Data within a tuple is referenced in the same way as a list, using index references starting at zero: >>> atuple = ('e','d','k') >>> atuple[0] The output is shown as follows: 'e' Dictionaries Dictionaries are denoted by curly brackets ({}) and are used to create key:value pairs. Also, keys can be any other type of data except lists (because lists are mutable). They are great for ordering and reordering data for use later in a script, so be sure to pay attention to them moving forward.

These topics include the Environment Settings, XY values and Z and M resolutions, Spatial Reference Systems (Projections), the Describe functions, and more. 7 is required to do the programming and is installed along with ArcGIS.
