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 c:/My Documents/ArcGis directory:
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

Clickable links for variables in these databases
Coded Variables 1-1849
Index to Variables

: The numbers in the index refer to those in the titles of the files, e.g., SCCS1-239.dbf

IN ADDITION TO C:\SoftwareDocs\ESRI_Library folder documentation in OUR SST 155 LAB, GO TO THE M: DRIVE and look under Anth179 for Instructional materials from Univ. of Nevada -- there are four introductory PDF lecture files on GIS from the Nevada instructor: as below

"SOC SCI 189: Geographic Information Systems for the Social Sciences" Spring 2006 - by Tony Soeller

I'm teaching a GIS class in Earth System Science this quarter and will be teaching a similar class in Social Sciences next quarter (SS189), so get the word out to your students, please. I've been working with Caesar Sereseres to formulate this class.

Here's the link to the skeleton web site: for the class mext quarter:

And this quarter's (Winter 2006 class with on-line files for lectures):
