  • The application of GIS is limited
  • only by the imagination
  • of those who use it.
  • Jack Dangermond, ESRI President Founder

Introduction to GIS…
  • Geographic Information System
  • Implemented with software tools
  • Layers Attributes

7
Layers
8
Attributes…
  • Behind the map are tables (Excel, txt, csv, etc.)

9
The GIS Process…
  • Ask a question
  • Obtain necessary data
  • Determine best method of analysis
  • Temporal
  • Spatial
  • Attribute
  • Analyze
  • Present results

10
See things anew…

11
Say it well…
  • Communicate.
  • Sell your position.
  • …as the saying goes, a picture is worth a
    thousand words!

12
Itll be free.
  • GIS spatial analysis
  • Examples of spatial analysis
  • Distance between sites/features
  • Relationship between two elements such as…
  • roads schools
  • wetlands rivers
  • affordable housing bus lines
  • zoning race
  • density income
  • etc.

13
What you have to do
  • Decide VERY soon if you are going to use GIS in
    your project
  • Attend GIS training (Feb. 7 Feb. 14)
  • Actually use GIS analysis for your project as
    part of your poster
  • Follow requirements for GIS map elements

Some Tips for Your Posters
  • Great resources already out there
  • Check out your website Expo archive
  • Those sources lead to more sources
  • 1 Priority Think about what is it you really
    want to say
  • Question
  • Abstract
  • Methods
  • Conclusions
  • What is interesting

36
Some Tips for Your Posters
  • Actually design the poster
  • Software
  • Size
  • Logic legibility
  • Flow
  • Interest
  • Required Poster Elements
  • Print it
  • Mount it

37
Some Tips for Your Posters
  • TIP Type your abstract out in font that is at
    least 18 point font. See how much room it will
    take up on the poster. Does it look better in
    portrait or landscape? Is it big enough to read
    from at least 5 feet away? Tape it to your wall
    and then walk away and try to read it. This will
    give you a sense of how much space on the poster
    readable text will require.

38
Some Tips for Your Posters
  • Do NOT
  • Neglect font size color
  • Use too much text
  • Ensure you have all required elements on the
    poster
  • Forget to spell check!!!!
