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.

Class tonight was very interesting - especially the Valladolid Expedition!
Exercises 8 & 9 were also interesting. I wish you could actually buy houses like that in CA for like $150k!
The abandoned Oil Pits exercise was alarming if those statistics are true - interesting too though.

Exercise 6 allowed me to learn a lot more as I was not just doing it step by step from the book.
I had to exercise a lot of trial and error, and I'd certainly rather be biking on the trails than tediously digitzing them!
It was pretty cool though how you could reference a set of data to the map by adding control points and then add the trails.
