GIS 111 9/21/07

Well I actually did a little better than I thought I did on the test. At least I passed. Our lab was quite interesting to me. We did chapters 15 and 16 and learned how to add, modify, and remove water lines, hydrants, and property lines. I have added some of the maps from this class.

Test day! I believe I had way to much new information to learn on chapter 3 (Geodesy, Projections, and Coordinate Systems). I tryed to print off the study guide on the GIS 111 home page but all I got was a blank screen ( I found out on class of the 21st that all I needed to do was hit the refresh button to get the study guide). I guess this was foreign to more than just me. I don't think I did well on the test. Here are some of the maps we did in lab.

GIS 111 9/7/2007

Today we covered Geodesy, Datums, Map Projections and Coordinate Systems. Another class with a lot to soak up. Pete helped to explain this a lot but it still seams that things could and should be standardized more. This class has helped me realize the huge amount of manpower and time that very intelligent people take to run and update GIS systems. I really don't know if I will ever be able to make the time to do what I need to do with the Town of Mars Hill's GIS mapping but I'll have a lot better understanding of what I can and what I should rely on an GIS professional to help me with. In lab we completed chapter 13 which was also very helpful in understanding projecting data in ArcMap. I have included some final maps in this post .
