A question for anyone who has experience with GIS, especially ArcGIS.

The supervisor on one of my work projects has decided that we should present our data as a collection of isopleth maps. This is doubly challenging, because we need to invent isopleths from the dataset, which only covers 215 cities around the country. Another researcher (at LBNL?) did this with ArcGIS, so my boss is talking about buying a copy and having me learn to do this.

I'm concerned with how long it will take me to learn ArcGIS, especially since I'm not likely to use this skill with any frequency. Any estimates? Is this a week of work? More? As hard as learning photoshop, or as hard as learning your first programming language? Is the task at hand particularly difficult? Is this all a terrible idea?

Extra bonus: If you can do this for less time/money than I can, send me email. I may be able to contract this out.
