Congratulations to Lindsay Golden for being selected as this week's student spotlight! Check out Lindsay's blog here - Lindsay's GIS Journey . Lindsay currently lives in Destin, Florida, and enjoys spending time outdoors, with wildlife and maps. She holds a BS degree in biology and is looking to combine her degree and interests into a position in the professional world. Lindsay you have come to the right place with GIS Online! Welcome to this week's coveted spotlight. The time spent here is dry and warm and cozy. See all that sunshine in your photo? Can you share with us here? We are waterlogged and so cold this week.
Week 5 - Projections Part 1
Why was Lindsay selected?Deidra and I always look forward to Lindsay's maps. She's done a great job consistently this semester. We are pleased to highlight her as a spotlight this week with her "Projections Part 1 Comparison Map"
We really like how she used primary colors to communicate counties and area measurements among the three different map projections. Additionally, the grey/white background contrast really makes the important info pop. The table makes that info easy to verify and smooth/curved data frames add a nice touch. She owned it... It's Golden!
