In this intermediate-level GIS investigation, students will learn about tools and techniques for integrating data having spatial attributes into a geographic information system (GIS). ArcGIS allows users to visualize data organized by geography or having latitude/longitude coordinates, i.e. originating with a Global Positioning System or in tabular (spreadsheet) format. Mapped data can then be examined geographically and combined with other spatial data. The investigation is also suitable for University-level students and others in that environment with novice or intermediate GIS skills. The lesson uses street, store location, parks, schools, and Census data for small region in Kansas, USA.
