The purpose of this assignment is for you to learn and practice some of the basic queries you can perform with GIS.
You may use data you have collected for your project, or if more applicable, use data we have in-house or that you can download online (e.g., parcel data for Somerville, MassGIS major road data, census data).
Perform an analysis in which you use all of the following, in any order or in combination:
- Select by attribute
Select by location
Statistics for selected features
Summarize by an attribute field value
For example, you could use these tools to analyze parcels in Somerville which meet certain conditions for redevelopment, or to get an idea of park access for Boston children using parks data and census data.
In your write-up for Part One, explain the goal of your mini-analysis, the steps you went through (i.e., the queries you performed), present the map or maps of the results, along with summary table(s) you create. Finally, add a note about why your analysis may have incorrect results.
