Swine Waste Eastern NC

This map is so good looking, I love it.
I think my biggest challenge in 121
will be constantly coming up with
ideas for what information I want
to portray to the viewer. I struggled
with that in this map, and I think
coming up with ideas that can be
enhanced when thinking about
them spatially will be helpful.

Here we go

I'm very excited about this starting GIS class. The more I read about it the more I'm enthralled with the software.

Welcome to Cartography

I seem to be getting a slow start so far. I seem to have deleted my first map lol. I'm working on opening the unzipped files in ArcView , and having a little trouble. It's all coming along, though. Land ho!

The Begining

Welcome to my blog spot!

This blog spot is aimed at helping me organize my Geographical Information Systems notes, as I embark on a journey through GIS Intro and Cartography at AB Tech.

A little background, I am a recent UNC Asheville graduate student with a BS in Environmental Management and Policy, Minor in Economics. As a student I worked on many environmental advocacy projects. In my last semester I co-founded and directed the new Student Environmental Center at UNC Asheville, that is now located in the Highsmith Uviversity Union. The center serves to educate the campus community on environmental issues through community-based social marketing, energy conservation and efficiency programs while working with state and local governments to better meet their sustainability goals.

I hope to be a part of the solution to Climate Change with a municipality, government, or private industry, as our choices will affect all life on Earth.
