2 Getting Started with ArcView GIS Introduction to the Laboratory Exercises

3 ERSI Product line MapObjects: Internet Map Server –(ActiveX) –Works in Windows Developer environments (e.g. Access, Visual C++, Powerbuilder etc) SDE: Spatial Database Engine –Highly integrated data base manager –Capable of treating maps as database entries –Uses data warehouse concept

4 ESRI Product Line Arc/Info: Full fledged GIS –Thousands of functions –Command line structure with menu tools –Arc Macro Language (AML) –Uses INFO relational data base or others –Many existing data sets –Interaction with ERDAS Imagine, AutoCAD

5 MapObjects

6 ESRI Product line ArcView 3.2 –Spatial Analyst –Network Analyst –Terrain Analyst –ArcView Internet Map Server –Support Products e.g. Manuals, CD- ROM MapObjects: Internet Map Server (ActiveX)

7 ArcView Extensions ArcPress: Output device control Business Analyst Image Analysis Internet Map Server Network Analyst Spatial Analyst StreetMap 1.0a StreetMap 2000 (GDT Dynamap) 3D Analyst Tracking Analyst Maplex

8 ArcView 3.2 Additions General performance enhancements Shapefile projection utility Updated Database Access 2 Updated Report Writer extension--Seagate Crystal Reports Version 7.0

9 ArcView 3.2 Additions (2) New data integration utilities New sample utilities and extensions New and updated "ESRI Data & Maps" (total of five CDs) Enhanced CADReader to support AutoCAD 2000

10 ArcView Components Project: collective storage for maps, charts and tables View: display set for geographic data Theme: One attribute or data layer, part of a display Table:spreadsheet-type flat file of attributes and records

11 ArcView: Elements

12 ArcView Components (2) Chart: “business graphic” display of data in a table Layout: Full set of properties, settings, and components that generate a specific map Script: a program written in ArcView’s programming language called “Avenue” Extension: An extra part of ArcView for specific enhancements, e.g. Spatial Analyst, Network Analyst.

13 The WIMP Interface Windows: Multiple, scroll, resize, elevator bar Icons: Represent windows, tasks, etc. Can use drag and drop, click to activate etc. Menus: Pop-up, pull-down, pull-right. Messages Pointers: Mostly the mouse. Can use digitizer, track ball etc.

14 Windows: The active window Projects, views, tables, charts, layout, and scripts all have their own windows Only one window is “active” at a time To make a window active, click on it or select it from the menus The title bar will be highlighted in color when the window is active


16 Help Help menu on right of tool bar Help topics launches indexed user guide How to get help is a guide to help Toolbar icon of arrow with ? Gives context-sensitive help

17 File menu New project Open project (.apr) Close project Save as Extensions Exit

18 Project menu Properties Customize Rename and delete Add table INFO, dBASE (.dbf), ASCII Import (projects, older versions) SQL connect window

19 Graphic data formats ArcInfo Coverages –info directory –multiple files ArcView Shape File (.shp) Many import formats Output to printer, file, image etc.
