This will make your life easier when managing the data files you will be using. Later you can easily move this entire working directory to your private storage space in the SIS lab. Make sure you have the spatial data and ArcGIS project files in the same directory. Copy the data files for this assignment into the new working directory you have created. You will need to extract the *.rar file so that you have access to the GIS data files. Select the ArcMap icon to begin the software.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
