Regular attendance at lecture and lab and regular, frequent posting of website material is a good idea.
Instructor will provide on-going individualized feedback on student
Required: an active U of M e-mail accountThere will be a class website containing lecture notes, links to source materials on the web, citations to printed matter that might be useful, and strategies that might be of use in the lab.
Lecture will center on theoretical and conceptual material. Lab will center on project development. There may also be some guest speakers during Lecture; they will offer different insights into mapping. Click here to see a broad view of GIS software acquisition strategy. Some of the broad general concepts to be considered include (but are not limited to):
scale, centrality, hierarchy, density, transformation, distance, orientation, geodesic, minimization, connection, adjacency

Alt+printscreen is the Windows-universal command to capture the entire screen on the Clipboard--then paste it into a word processor to write documentation for software or into a browser to create online documentation (or paste it anywhere else--you can even keep a copy of the current pattern of icons on your desktop in this way). Also use to get good images from ArcView when the export facility is inadequate.
Copy (by highlighting the URL in your browser) useful links (ctrl+c); paste them into a NotePad file and save it. Then you can later copy and paste links easily on your website or into another browser window without ever having to retype the URL.
