Combined - Geographic Information Systems Basemaps with Network Overlays:
Open in IE only Example of GIS with Network Flyover (note use of zoom and ALT leftclick for flyover)
GIS - Geographic Information Systems To load a new data file click /Add Data (Black Cross on Yellow) and find a *.dbf (you can make a dbf from excel through the save formats, but include X Y coordinate data to map such as Latitude and Longitude.
Once you open, Right click your data table (new file at very bottom with table icon) and Display X Y data (second option from bottom) to make sure that your nodes are coordinated with the map. You may have to click the variables that will be the X,Y coordinates (e.g., Lat and Long). Now an events icon will appear on the left box window higher up in the file list (it has a box to check to show/hide).
Right click the events icon (dbf name next to the check-box, just above the data table with table icon) and at the bottom
of the new menu click /Properties
then click at the top the tab /Symbology
and at the left click under Show:Quantities
in the new menu click Graduated then select a variable and scale items for size, color – that will code your nodes by color and size. This is how you create maps with variables with features defined by node size. If you copy and paste this first property, you can then repeat /Properties and the tab for /Symbology to now display a second (third, etc) variable, for as many different properties as you want. If you have more than one property clicked, however, the larger nodes will override the smaller.
To show attributes from your database: /Selection/Select by Attributes
there are dbase files for use with GIS in the
SCCS8-8.dbf I would like you to be able to use to map cultural variables from these files, and the codebooks for these ae in two parts and an index below:
Edit to correct your data (p308): with View/Toolbars click /Editor; Editor button will appear above the window. Click a cell in the data table. Then click the Edit button. To import data: /File/Add Data from Geography Menu
