Oops - Can't Work on GIS Today

Got a call this morning to go into work - I will probably have another day off later this week to catch up on my GIS project. Can't do it today till later.

Need To Get Back to Work

I have taken a few days off this project; I need to get the next phase completed. Tomorrow and Monday should give me a chance to make some progress.

Moving Right Along

I have clipped and combined the 9 quads that are needed to show Jim's study area. Next step, create the line and point layers.

The Work Continues

Jim Delahoussaye is giving a presentation at Vermilionville for their lecture series in mid-July. I'm working on expanding my class project to give him some maps he can use in the slide show about the Myette Point people.

I don't know why I couldn't figure out this feature of ArcMap last semester; I guess I was so panicked by the end of the semester that I wasn't paying attention.

Anyway, I had previously used clipping in last fall's class, and while revisiting it a few days ago, I found that it is possible to clip a base map to the extent of a layer. This will effectively clip the map collars of the historic quads I'm using, and provide a nearly mosaicked map. I think I have all the quads of the study area in the 1935 edition, so I'm getting excited about working on it.
