Unformatted text preview: GEOG 3561/5561 Review for Exam 1 The first exam for GEOG 3561/5561 will be in class on Thursday, October 8.

You will not be held responsible for material covered in lab, including techniques of ArcGIS. Readings . Note that the readings differ somewhat from the syllabus, though for the most part we have stayed on course. All reading will be from the textbook, though you might find the websites posted on the moodle site useful to supplement the textbook. From the textbook, make sure you have looked carefully at: Chapter 1.1-1.2, 1.4, From the textbook, make sure you have looked carefully at: Chapter 1....
