Purpose: For this homework assignment you will briefly explore ArcGIS Online, a product of the ESRI geospatial company.  You will work through a series of 4 ‘lessons’ and answer a few questions or provide screenshots, as outlined below.  The assignment should take no more than 60 minutes.

Task: Read through the Overview, then work through the four lessons.  Be sure to insert all your question/prompt responses in this Answer Sheet预览文档. (Submit to “ArcGIS” on Canvas when finished.)

[For making screenshots in MAC computers: If you simultaneously press these four buttons shift+control+command+4, a crosshair cursor allows you to select an area for a screen shot.  The resulting screen shot is placed on your ‘clipboard’; you can then paste it in your answer document.]

QUESTIONS to answer
