When I first opened ArcGis I was overwhelmed—but, then I started exploring and within no time I was hooked. I started with a topographic base map of the area where I live. I added my house, the school I work at, the parks where I walk my dog, and an arrow that points to the beach. I included dotted lines from my house to the parks and a dash line from my house to where I work. I added layers that show the waterways, Intracoastal, bridges, and sea turtle nesting beaches. I have a feeling I will be spending a little more time on this website. Here is the link to my map: http://arcg.is/1PRorqf.
