Intro to GIS: Our "Top 10"
Lab 4: Sharing GIS Maps and DataIn this lab students created a Top 10 location-based list. Students acquired their own location data, created a map in ArcMap and shared that map publically in ArcGIS Online.
Attention is shifted to designing for web maps vs paper maps. Specifically, students learned how to share GIS maps and data with others as a kmz file accessible through Google Earth and as a map package viewable on ArcGIS Online or Desktop.
In this week's lab students learned to:
- Add ArcGIS Online basemaps and data from ArcMap
- Use the Search tool in ArcMap to locate data and tools
- Create a custom map package
- Troubleshoot map package errors
- Share a map package, ArcGIS Online map, and a Google Earth kmz on the web
