GIS Tutorial

Introduction

The following tutorials were developed for people who have access to and basic knowledge of, ArcView® GIS software (Version 3.1 or higher) but may not be familiar with some aspects of GIS and remote sensing data. The tutorials illustrate GIS features that allow the GIS data contained on this CD-ROM to be tailored to meet user needs. The features are common to many GIS packages; however, the Data Summary Tool was specially developed for use with the ACE Basin Characterization. With the exception of the Data Summary Tool, the ArcView Help menu provides detailed discussions of these features. This tutorial reviews some of these discussions with examples that use the ACE Basin data.

Descriptions of the ArcView project files contained on this CD-ROM, and their associated views, are presented in the section entitled GIS Viewing Tools . Note that the project file gis_tour.apr includes a Tutorial view. This will be the primary view utilized in these tutorials; however, the GIS techniques learned here can be applied to other projects on this CD-ROM as well as other data sources.
