  4. 4. First we had to reset our GPS units to metric units <br />We did this so that everyone's GPS units would be the same <br />and because metric units are universal.<br />

  7. 7. Mapping<br />Landscape – Dry <br />It was like a desert with dry weeds everywhere.<br />There were Jumping Cactuses that somehow got all over you and your clothes. <br />It took about two hours to map all the weeds on the reserve.<br />From the reserve you could see Mexico and the border which was about a mile away.<br />
  8. 8. Assembling and Analyzing Data<br />There were four groups. We each put our information on different computers. <br />We each put the points and polygons on an aerial photo of the site. <br />
  9. 9. .<br />Preparing Data for Presentation<br />We then merged all of our maps together to make one complete map of the weeds. <br />
  10. 10. Finished Map<br />The Rumex is in yellow. <br />The Fennel is in blue. <br />
  11. 11. International GIS Conferences <br />We also went to the International ESRI Education and Users Conferences. <br />This is Jack Dangermond<br />He is the creator of ESRI. <br />His company designs the GIS software we used to make our maps. <br />
  12. 12. Map Gallery <br />Our group worked the 4-H booth during the Map Gallery at the ESRI Users Conference.<br />We informed people about our service project and what we did.<br />It was fun because we got to meet a lot of new people while informing them about 4-H and GIS.<br />
