The problem question

How can the locations and

identities of different plants in

Desert Garden be made

available to visitors?

The Problem Question:


Getting started create base map

Upload the image of the Balboa Park (Desert Garden) Map in Arc Map using the Add Data Tool

Getting Started: Create Base Map


Creating a new layer wheelchair accessible trail

  • On Arc Catalog, Create a new blank shapefile Arc Map using the Add Data Tool

  • In the menu bar, click: File, New, then Shapefile

  • Name the shapefile (Wheelchair Accessible Concrete Trail) and change the “Feature Type” to polyline

  • Give the shapefile a coordinate system

  • Edit, Select, Geographic Coordinate System, North America, NAD 84

Creating a new layer: wheelchair accessible trail


Continued

  • Add the new shapefile to Arc Map that already contains the image of Desert Garden

  • On the Editor toolbar click on the “Editor” drop down, click “Start Editing” (Task should be “Create New Feature” and Target should be your blank shapefile [Wheelchair Accessible Concrete Trail])

Continued…


Continued1

Change the symbology

right-click the layer titled “wheelchair accessible concrete trail” in the table of contents, scroll down and click “layer properties”

Click on the “symbology tab”, then on the image under “Symbol”

Knowing that I would have three trails to make in total, I decided to pick distinct colors

change the symbology


Continued2

Creating a new layer decomposed granite trail

Create another Shapefile on Arc Catalog with the same steps previously used, but name this Shapefile “Decomposed Granite Trail”

Click “Add Data” on your Arc Map file and add the new shapefile

Creating a new layer: decomposed granite trail


Continued3

  • On the Editor toolbar in the “Edit” drop down, click “Start Editing” (Task should be “Create New Feature” and Target should be your blank shapefile [Decomposed Granite Trail])

  • With the “Draw tool” option, outline the trail that was created for the public on the image

Continued…

Adding waypoints to the basemap

The waypoints represent the various locations of the desert plants collected by the GPS unit

The waypoints were then uploaded onto the computer, and transferred onto an Excel Spreadsheet

Make a third column and label it ORDR, assigning a certain number to each coordinate to create a descending order

Adding waypoints to the basemap


Continued9

  • On plants collected by the GPS unitArcMap, click on the Tools Menu, and click on “Add XY Data”

    • Make sure to assign the appropriate coordinate system (WGS 1984.prj)

  • In the table of contents, right click the waypoints, click “Properties”, and change the Label Name to “Location of Plants” under the General Tab

Continued…


Continued10

  • Under the Symbology tab, change the symbol to Circle 2, and change the color to Red (to be noticeable)

  • Click on the Labels tab and change the Label Field to ORDR and use the Advanced Text to add a tan colored background to the number label

  • Click Ok to exit

  • Right click “Location of Plants” and click on “Label Features”

    • On your map, you should now see numbers next to the red circles

Final project
Final project “pictures…” and locate the pictures of the desert plants


Conclusion

The locations of the plants in the Desert Garden can be made available to visitors by showing a picture with an appropriate label with corresponding locations on a map of the garden from aerial view. This type of visual can be easily displayed, and easily understood for visitors to enjoy.
