Module 10 - Terrain Analysis

Lab Test - 04-17-08

Tonight's lab test was quite fun I thought.
ArcMap allows you to create maps very effectively and efficiently.
The Terrain Analysis exercise in Module 10 demonstrated the various surface analysis functions - all of which displayed their data in a very visual and easy to interpret format.

Class 04-03-08

Tonight's class was very interesting. I think the ability to insert buffers, and unions are an essential part of much environmental impact research, which is a field I am very interested in.
The capability of a GPS unit to track such detailed coordinates with such little effort is amazing - it was really cool to see where we had skiied and hopefully we can invest in a GPS so we cna track all of our adventures.

Class 03-13-08

Class was very interesting, as it usually is. Worked on a lot of new things in exercises 10& 11.
The SIXTY minute video was a little long but I did pick up some time-saving tips!
The exercises really demonstrated how widely applicable GIS, espeicially exercise 10, from a business perspective.
