For the graded assignment in the Introduction to Mapping, Spatial Data and GIS course I completed in June I made the following map:
Things I got up to in the last week:
- GEOG 868: Lesson 5: Working with Esri’s Desktop Geodatabases
- read some of my BCS cartography book
- accidentally started a website redesign project
Some rambles about each of those:
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.
