Exercises and data for the book

The GIS Guide to Public Domain Data is accompanied by 10 exercises that guide you through the process of locating, downloading, processing, and analyzing some public domain spatial data. The exercises can be downloaded (no sign in required) from Google Drive.  For an overview of the exercises and the physical location of each (Kenya, Brazil, and elsewhere), see this story map.



Accessing the data on ArcGIS Online

    Locations of the CORRECT copies of exercises that are available for free are not clearly communicated and so far the only CORRECT set is available on a site that charges $8.99.

    One pays for the book and has to then fumble through various copies of the exercises to find correct copies and then PAY MORE!

    My students are frustrated, I am playing catchup to support them and I do not have confidence in the above claims at this point. Bring back the old ESRI Virtual Campus and sack the (still in beta) E-Learning site foisted on colleges with two weeks notice last August.
