Case Study: How to use ArcMap and Google Earth Together to Create Powerful Mapping
Jason Wawro, LaBella Associates
Consultants are often tasked with generating mapping for an area they are not familiar with, sometimes with insufficient information to accurately define the project area. Other times, consultants are provided with low-quality paper or electronic maps from which to generate mapping for the project. The information on the map may be useful, but the low quality renders it useless. There are some free tools available that work with ArcView to greatly simplify these kinds of tasks, and circumvent some common problems.
In this case, we looked at a Request for Proposal (RFP) for an out-of-state project. The RFP contained a low-quality topographic map, the project area was extremely rural, and the local roads did not have assigned names. The consultant was asked to produce mapping in order to enable the project team to view and understand the project area. This presentation described the process used to take that low-quality topo map, and using ArcView, Google Earth, and two free extensions, create valuable project mapping for internal use.
