1 Esri International User Conference San Diego, California Technical Workshops July 23-27, 2012 What Is Geographic Data and Where Can I Find It? Miriam Schmidts Geri Miller

2 Agenda What is Geographic Data? Where can I find it? - Online sources - Converting existing data - Creating it yourself

3 What is geographic data?

4 Geographic data Is this geographic data? yes yes yes

5 Geographic data Information describing the location and attributes of things, including their shapes and representation. Geographic data is the composite of spatial data and attribute data.

6 Geographic data in GIS

7 GIS data models Real world Vector Raster

8 Vector data - a shape-based view

9 Raster data - a cell based view Imagery Elevation Vegetation

10 How GIS data stores location Pairs of X,Y coordinates - Longitude and Latitude - Projected X,Y coordinates Y X<0 Y>0 X<0 Y<0 (0,0) X>0 Y>0 X>0 Y<0 X

11 How GIS data stores location (cont.)

12 How GIS data is stored Vector formats Geodatabase feature classes Shapefiles - Name.shp - Name.shx - Name.dbf Coverages / E00 KML/KMZ Raster / Image formats - Tiff - MrSID - Many more.

13 Layer and map packages Map package Full contents of map document Map properties Data frames All layers and data Layer package Full contents of a single layer Includes layer's data May also apply to group layer

14 How about tables? ObjectID Shape Name Type Address 1 Point Chance Town Center Manatee Ave 2 Point Gold Valley Iris Street 3 Point Riley Fields Chestnut Dr OID X Y Name Address Chance Town Center 216 Manatee Ave Gold Valley 1955 Iris Street Riley Fields Chestnut Dr ObjectID Park_type Park_type_description 1 0 City park 2 1 Reservoir 3 2 Sports Complex

15 Where can I find geographic data?

16 Methods for obtaining GIS data

17 Demo: Accessing GIS data online

18 Summary: Accessing GIS data online ArcGIS.Online: - Ready to use data and basemaps - Data and Maps for ArcGIS Esri Data page: - Imagery, Streets, Shaded Relief, Topographic Data - Demographics, Consumer Spending, Business, and Marketplace Data - Free Data Census TIGER/Line Shapefiles

19 Data Documentation Item Description - Title, Thumbnail, Tags - Summary (Purpose) - Description (Abstract) - Credits - Use Limitations - Extent - Scale range Metadata - More elements - Complies with standards

20 Demo: More online data sources

21 Summary: More online data sources Government agencies, for example: Colleges and Universities, for example: States, counties, cities Commercial vendors - Many.

22 Converting existing data Converting spatial data formats - Shapefile Geodatabase - E00 Coverage Geodatabase - Any Any Converting tabular data into spatial data

23 Converting tabular data Display X,Y Data Geocoding OID X Y Name Address Chance Town Center 216 Manatee Ave Gold Valley 1955 Iris Street Riley Fields Chestnut Dr

24 Demo: Converting tabular data

25 Summary: Converting tabular data Display X,Y data: converting X,Y coordinates into points - Need separate columns for the X and the Y coordinate - Can be longitude and latitude or projected coordinates - Need to define the coordinate system that the x,y Geocoding: converting address information into points - Can geocode single addresses or a table of addresses - Use online geocoding service or build your own address locator

26 Creating geographic data Vector - Digitized from paper maps or from imagery - Survey data, GPS, ranging - Converted from imagery or scanned maps - As output from geoprocessing Raster - Aerial cameras/scanners - Classification from imagery - As output from geoprocessing

27 Demo: Digitizing vector data

28 Summary: Digitizing vector data If necessary, create a shapefile or geodatabase feature class If necessary, add it to the map Start an edit session Choose feature template & construction tool Create new feature Add or edit attributes Save edits
