Through this mapping task, we will share our knowledge about Cornell's campus. Please focus within the outlined blue--this is primarily our campus. If a square seems to big for you, don't hesitate to break it up.
PATHS We are interested in roads and paths (e.g. dirt, foot only, bike). Trace the road/path using the "Line" function. - For roads, click "Road Features..." Most roads at Cornell will be a primary road. - For paths, click "Path Features..." Select what you think is most appropriate. (Note the "Steps" option. If there's a big staircase, put it on the map! This could be helpful information for many.)
BUILDINGS We are interested in eateries, dorms, academic buildings--you name it! Literally! Trace the shape of the building using the "Area" function. - Which department has classes here? Put it in the Description (Select a Feature > Scroll to "Add Field" > Select "Description"). - If this is a place to eat, feel free to add a note recommending your favorite foods ("Add Field" > "Note"). - Is this a place that has special activities or hours? Add a website with a link describing that info! ("Add Field" > "Website"). Example: I added the website for Teagle's hours to the building.
