  1. 1. Human Systems GIS Map The Demographic Conference
  2. 2. You Will Learn: <ul><li>Label button </li></ul><ul><li>Banner text button </li></ul><ul><li>Identify Button </li></ul><ul><li>Text label button </li></ul><ul><li>Draw point button </li></ul><ul><li>Measure button </li></ul><ul><li>Save project button </li></ul>
  3. 3. Your Task <ul><li>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: </li></ul>
  4. 4. Where to put the conference <ul><li>1. Choose a location to hold your conference in Canada. Be sure to consider the following: </li></ul><ul><li>the centrality of location within Canada for arriving students (why should some travel a long way, and others just a little?), </li></ul><ul><li>economic constraints (you are paying for the kids to come and stay so list the things that are part of your cost and think of what you can do to make your cost low), </li></ul><ul><li>and economic benefits to the host locality (what will they spend money on while they are in your host city and what good will tourist dollars do for the local people?) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Plan the trip for three groups <ul><li>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). </li></ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Arc View will help you measure the distances they will travel. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>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.) </li></ul>
  6. 6. What do you need to show on your map? <ul><li>For each of the three groups ( Plane, Train, Bus ) you need to show the following: </li></ul><ul><li>A text label that states </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Method of travel (Plane, Train, Bus) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Distance on the ground they travel in km . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The time it would be in their capital if it is 1pm at your conference location. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(eg. If your conference is in Toronto, and the Victoria students are coming by plane, what time would it be in Victoria if it is 1pm in Toronto?? Ans. 10 am) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A text label that states the location of your conference. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Example In km ! Label has location, travel type, distance, time at home Box around legend! Your Name !
  8. 8. <ul><li>Step 1 Open ArcView, Select with a new View </li></ul><ul><li>Step2 Set the drive to the X: drive </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Step 3 Select the folder arcview data, then select arccanada31_d1(d), then select national. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Step 5 Maximize your arcview screens (buttons in upper right of screen). Turn on the different themes (check mark in small grey boxes). </li></ul>What a mess!
  12. 12. <ul><li>Step 6 Unclutter your map by turning off the Maj_roads.shp and the rail.shp . Now lets identify the 4 cities that you wish to label (Location of Conference, Bus, Train and Plane route to conference) </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Step 7 Alter your legends to show only capitals. To do that, select Theme, then Edit Legend. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Step 8 Legend type needs to be set to Graduated colour. </li></ul><ul><li>Change Classification Field and Normalize by to capital. </li></ul>Click on the dot shown under symbol, and select the paintbrush tool to change the colour of the capitals to a colour that will stick out. You may alter the size and symbol type if you choose.
  15. 15. <ul><li>Step 9 Use the identify tool to locate your cities. When you find them label them with the label tool </li></ul><ul><li>To add the location of the Demographic Conference, use the text label button , pull down to find the label you like. Type in your conference location. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Step 10 In order to place the proper trip lines on your map, you will need to turn the road and rail themes on one at a time! (Turn one on, turn the other off) Turn on major roads first. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>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. </li></ul>Click and pull down. I suggest you use the Squiggly line!
  18. 18. <ul><li>Step 12 To draw your lines, place the crosshairs on your city. Click along the highway, drawing a line as you go. When you get to the conference, double click to make your line stay. </li></ul><ul><li>To change the appearance of your lines, double click right on the line, and select thicknesses, and colours that you like. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Step 13 Select View from the index at the top, then select properties. Change the view properties to km. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Step 14 Use the measure tool to determine how far each of the selected three groups of delegates will have to travel. </li></ul><ul><li>Click along the route to make sure you account for travel that is not straight. The distance will appear in the bottom left of your screen. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Add your information to the map <ul><li>For each of the three groups ( Plane, Train, Bus ) you need to show the following: </li></ul><ul><li>A text label that states </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Method of travel (Plane, Train, Bus) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Distance on the ground they travel in km . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The time it would be in their capital it is 1pm at your conference location . (8 th edition atlas p 141, Pearson Atlas p105 Timezone map) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(eg.
