Last month I took part in my first 30DayMapChallenge – a daily mapmaking challenge that takes place in November each year.
Hello! This week I thought I’d share a few highlights from my BCS Conference notes.
The first Student Reflection in GEOG 486 Lesson 1 asks:
Which map of the two below best communicates the trend of the data? Why?
For the graded assignment in the Introduction to Mapping, Spatial Data and GIS course I completed in June I made the following map:
In Lesson 4 of GEOG 868 I completed a site selection using PostGIS.
The Making Maps unit for the Introduction to Mapping, Spatial Data and GIS course I completed in June featured a tourism case study. The exercise that week was to create a tourist map of Melbourne in Australia.
In Lesson 3 of GEOG 868 I played around with PostgreSQL and PostGIS for the first time. For the project at the end you are given a
class_roster.txt file that contains a list of students and their postal codes. The task was to join that with data provided earlier in the lesson and then plot the students’ locations on a map in QGIS. Here’s how I went about doing that.
