GIS in MapWindowGIS Exercise 1 11/14 Overview A. Introduce MapWindowGIS. MapWindow runways, noise contours, aerials, parcels, zones.mwprj B. Add aerial photographs layer. C. Add the land parcels layer. D. Add the zoning layer. Because all layer files except the Noise-Contours were obtained from Seminole County government sources, all layers are the same coordinate system. Noise- Contours were converted to the same system in a previous exercise. Layer Coordinate System RunwaysArc_1 NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet Noise-Contour XY from INM, but transormed to NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet in a previous exercise. Raster images NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet Parcel NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet Zoning NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet E. Prepare map for inquires. F. Determine parcel information. G. Determine zoning information. H. Prepare and deliver the exercise verification. A. Introduce MapWindowGIS. 1.
