The Scenario : The Ministry of Employment and Immigration has decided to host a three day conference on Demographic Issues Facing Canada in the New Millennium for 130 students from across Canada. The conference will allow 10 students from each province and territory to travel (all expenses paid) to the location you choose. You are in charge of a committee to organize this conference. Your responsibilities are as follows:
Your map must include one set of students who travel by plane , one set who travel by train and one set who travel by Highway (Bus or Car).
You will need to use Arc View to help you draw a line along the actual road, rail and flight (make a straight line) routes.
Arc View will help you measure the distances they will travel.
Use your knowledge from the skills unit to determine the time it would be at the students home if they call from the conference at 1pm
You may not create travel itineraries for students coming from provinces/territories that border the conference host province/territory (eg. If you use Toronto for the conference, you may not send kids from Manitoba or Quebec.)
Step 4 Under national themes select shp . Scroll through the themes on the left and select canada2001.shp . View the rest of the themes, press and hold shift to select themes of use for the project (you decide). I suggest you start with cities.shp , Maj_roads.shp and rail.shp
Step 11 Make cities the active theme . Add the Bus travel route from your city to the conference on to your map. Use the dropdown menu under the Draw point button to select a means to add your travel routes.
Click and pull down. I suggest you use the Squiggly line!
Step 15 Save your work by selecting File from the upper menu, then save project as , switch the drive to the h: drive and then in the file name field call it yourfirstnamelastinitialhumansys For example timmykcanada Then click OK .
When you are satisfied with your View, it is time to put this all into a Layout! At the top menu select View , then layout . Click OK to accept the Landscape layout. Arc View will automatically produce a new map layout for you.
In order to add context to your layout, find a photo of the conference center in the city you have selected (google it!). Save the photo as a .jpg to your H: drive where you can find it. It must be a .jpg or it will not work.
At the layout screen, select File, Extensions. Check the JPEG (JFIF) Image Support box, then click OK.
