Here are a few new maps I have made in class, with brief explanations.
Hey mom! I will teach you how to make maps next time I visit. A computer whiz like you can pick it up in no time!!
Lab 5 Map 1: This map shows all land parcels that are in a vernal-pool extension zone. Hypothetically it could be used by a local government to alert land owners who are within vernal pool zones.
Lab 5 Map 2: This map shows potential campsite locations that are within a certain requested distance from botha roadway and access to water.
Lab 5 Map 3: This map shows regions that might be worth solar-power investment. The hypothetical company wishing to invest in solar power generation established a set of criteria for investment regions, including (a) they are close to a heavily populated city, (b) they are in an area of low elevation (c) they experience high rates of cloudless days(d)they are close to the equator. This map is separated into three maps highlighting regions of cloudless percentages of 60%, 70%, and 75%.
Lab 6 Map 1:This map further expands onLab 5 Map 3by targeting cities that were found to have a 60% cloudless rate that are also within a 50 mile radius from a city with a population of 1 million or greater.
I swear that I will eventually start using my newly acquired mapping skills in relation to Beirut’s potential transportation system…as well as other interesting urban focused questions.
