In lab 2 we will learn how different projections affect the way a map represents information to the user. Building on our introduction to ArcMap in Lab 1, we will learn how to change projections in the data view and how to accurately use the measure tool. After completing this assignment we will be able to explain why different projections are used for specific purposes. Make sure all measurements are in MILES. Copy data from R drive to X drive folder, or to your local drive at home, or jump drive. When you add a layer, a red ! may appear. Link the source to your X drive, or whichever drive you are working from. Reminder : Remember your Las Pulgas map for next week.
