My final project in an Intro to ARCVIEW 3 course involved downloading
from an FCC database pertaining to cell phone sites, adding some census
block information and showing a three mile radius around each cell
site. The result is a first approximation of where a cell phone
will probably work in NH. The yellow stars are the cell sites,
orange blobs are blocks in range and the green blobs are the other
blocks. Read the paper
or see a larger image.
Here is a draft of a Chlorpleth map showing populaiton as a percent of
the whole with Graduated Dots. It doesn't show much. I wish
I still had access to CorelDraw to show the end product.
Another project involved Surfer, a nice tool for creating contours and
3d surfaces from gridded data. I created a grid on a topo map and
recorded elevation at the grid points. Running the data through
Surfer and adding some more decorations in Corel gave the image below.
Another large part of the class was devoted to a Vermont Atlas.
Each member of the class was assigned an aspect of the atlas. I
chose hydro. I did most of the work in ArcView 8.3 exporting themes as
tifs to be loading in Corel as the final step. In this example a
DEM was converted to a TIN and overlaid with Hydro and City features.
Labeling was done in Corel.
