Scale Scale is the relationship between the size of features on a map and the size of the corresponding objects in the real world. Scale is commonly expressed as a ratio, or representative fraction, such as 1:24,000. This scale means one unit on the map is equal to 24,000 units on the earth. Another way of thinking about it is that the objects on the earth are 24,000 times larger than the features on the map which represent them. Large-scale map such as a map of city streets or a building plan, covers a small area in more detail. A small-scale map, such as a world map, covers a large area in less detail. GIS maps are dynamic—you can change the scale to see more or less detail as desired.

Measuring Distance

ArcGIS Desktop ArcMap – explore and edit geographic data, analysis, create maps/reports (map document files.mxd) ArcCatalog – browsing, managing, documenting geographic data ArcToolbox – tools used for GIS analysis, data management, data conversion Metadata –info that describes or documents a geographic dataset (data about data)

ArcCatalog – Browse Data

ArcCatalog – Preview Data

Changing Symbol Color/Width

ArcGIS Desktop ArcMap – explore and edit geographic data, analysis, create maps/reports (map document files.mxd) ArcCatalog – browsing, managing, documenting geographic data ArcToolbox – tools used for GIS analysis, data management, data conversion Metadata –info that describes or documents a geographic dataset (data about data)

ArcToolBox

Buffer Creates Buffer polygons to a specified distance around the Input Features

Buffer

Union Creates a geometric intersections of the Input Features. All features will be written to the Output Feature Class with the attributes from the Input Features, which it overlaps. In terms of a table, want both irrigated area and county name.

Union

City Zones Census Blocks

Select by Attributes

Select the residential areas

Select by Attributes

Select Features by Location

Select parcels inside the tornado buffer zone

Select Features by Location

Statistics

Look at building value of selected parcels

Exporting Data

Creating a Map Title Enough data frames for reference (usually a large and small scale map) Scale Bar North Arrow Legend Your name and info (i.e., lab time)

Lab 1: GIS Learning ArcGIS Desktop –Module1 Create a map showing the potential youth center locations without using the map template. Save this as a jpeg and either email to me or print and hand in. Spend some time making it nice! Turn in Module1 Completion Certificate (email or print and turn in) Due Friday April 20 th

Saving/Printing Module Certificate

Print and turn in or Screen Dump (ctrl- print screen) Paste in Word Email Word document

Next Class Try to email questions before class Go over Lab 2: –Learning ArcGIS Spatial Analyst Module 1
