GIS Lab Assignment Week 10

For this weeks lab we learned how to define and use two of the most common modeling tools in ArcGIS: buffer and overlay and to create a script in ArcPy to run the buffer tool. We also learned how to analyze vector data using spatial queries and to identify the 6 overlay operations available and recall when to use each. This map shows the potential camping areas between West:-89.133191, North: 31.101625, East: -88.898345, South: 30.908679.

Midterm



For this weeks lab we had to download data for a specific county we were given in class. We were able to make three different maps anyway we would like. I chose to Make maps that show the locations of the Madison county habit conservation areas and invasive species, Madison county school Parcels, and a map on the elevation of Madison county. For these maps I learned how to download different data that I would need to make maps about a specific area. I liked having the freedom to make the maps the way I wanted to even though it was the first time I made a map for this class with almost no direction.
