The Grand Finale!

The Grand Finale!

Evaluating the Bobwhite-Manatee Electrical Transmission Line Project

Well, here it is, the final lab assignment for GIS 5050/L. I've learned a lot in this class and this final was no exception. It was a great way to test the many skills I've learned in the framework of a real world application. 

Our task was to assess a selected corridor for an electrical transmission line spanning two counties in Southwest Florida. We needed to determine the impact of the transmission line on homes, schools, environmentally sensitive areas, and the length of the transmission line with associated costs. Below are links to my PowerPoint presentation as well as the transcript for the presentation, if I were actually giving it. I hope you enjoy!

More than anything, I am proud of my maps. They look good, have all the essential map elements, and display the necessary data. I also enjoyed using the many functions within ArcGIS to analyze the data. The project was time consuming, but in the end, rewarding. I look forward to implementing all the skills I've learned in future coursework or in a professional capacity.
