Friday, Oct 5th, 2007 -- Joining Tables

Today we pulled new data sources into our Map. This was very interesting because I can imagine that there are many times when valuable data is outside the original map document. It was also great to see how to query and restrict the data.

I want to get the Buncombe county data and do some queries, like how many parcels > 100 acres in east Asheville, where I live.... or, how many parcels are valued at greater than a million dollars, etc. Fun stuff.

As long as you have some common data element, like PID, PIN, you can tie the data together. Very cool.

A lot to study for next week's test.
