Delaware GIS Data Exercise

erase-functional-illiteracy

Each student will create an ArcMap map with the following Delaware GIS data layers & describe (sentence or two) all data layers except those marked ‘ignore.’ (the ignore folders have data that is not relevant, or newer versions of the data are in other folders)

In essence, you are creating a very brief set of metadata (data about data) for all the available layers of information. There may be several shape files (.shp) in these folders, make sure to review all of them.

Keep your brain engaged: how might some of these layers be used in your course projects?

Put your metadata information in a blog posting.

You will use some of this data for your take-home mid term exam.

DUE: Wednesday February 26.

Delaware GIS Data Metadata is here.

If any data folders are missing please talk to your instructor.
