Hawaii County GIS Resources - General




I'm spending this week on Big Island working with county staff who use GIS in their work.  I've compiled some links to online resources that we'll be using during the week and since they may have broader interest, I'm sharing general information here.

In other posts I provide specific information and links on:
  - Parcel (TMK) Data
  - Address Data

UPCOMING EVENTS

ARCGIS FOR DESKTOP: DATA DRIVEN PAGES (MAP BOOKS)

There used to be an extension in ArcGIS for Desktop called "DS Mapbook". It was a great little extension that provided tools to help you create a map book. At ArcGIS 10.0 (and 10.1 and 10.2) similar tools are part of the core product on the Data Driven Pages toolbar.

I posted on the Hawaii GeoTeam 2013 blog about election data including an introduction to Data Driven Pages.  Here's the link:

There's a 70 minute video from Esri UC 2013 demonstrating how to use Data Driven Pages and how to customize map books using Python scripts.  Here's the link:

ARCGIS FOR DESKTOP: EDITING

There are a couple of really good videos from Esri UC 2012 that cover editing.  Each lasts more than an hour and shows lots of useful examples.
