Can you help me with this one as well? Thanks for your help earlier 🙂 ATTACHMENT PREVIEW Download attachment Project2 PDF.pdf PROJECT 2: CREATING AND INTERPRETING MAPS Written by David DiBiase and Jim Sloan © 1999-2015 The Pennsylvania State University OVERVIEW Educational Objectives In this project you will create and interpret reference maps and thematic maps of your home town and county using geospatial and attribute data produced by the U.S. Census Bureau. (If your home is not in the U.S., please choose a U.S. town and county with which you are familiar enough to be able to interpret the maps you make.) You will use American FactFinder, the Census Bureau’s Internet-based data dissemination system. American FactFinder enables you to create maps from TIGER/Line files and census demographic data. In the process of producing the deliverables assigned for this project, you will demonstrate your ability to: 1. Use American FactFinder to create reference maps and thematic maps. 2. Recognize and describe the use of TIGER/Line file data and census demographic data in American FactFinder. 3. Interpret geographic patterns revealed in thematic maps. 4. Compare the effects on apparent patterns caused by different data classification schemes. 5. Calculate map scale. Deliverables Your complete project report, submitted to the Project 2 module in Canvas. See the Canvas course Calendar for the due date. Evaluation Criteria Project 2 is worth 100 points. Evaluation criteria include: • Quality: 54 points. Maps should be produced using American FactFinder. They should be appropriately symbolized, scaled, and the content appropriately framed. Map descriptions should be thoughtful, insightful, as original as possible, and well written. As with any writing assignment, pay close attention to spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Communication skills count! • Completeness: 31 points. All maps, legends, and descriptions should be present. • Timeliness: 5 points. Project report should be submitted by the assigned due date. Students requesting an extension must contact their grading assistant prior to the deadline. • Above and beyond: 10 points. At Penn State, the course grade "A" (which corresponds to at least 90 percent of possible points in this course) denotes "exceptional achievement." In this course, project reports that fulfill minimum requirements earn a score of 90 out of 100 points. Up to 10 additional points are awarded for report elements that exceed minimum requirements. See the Project 2 rubric, below, for details. 1 RUBRIC PROJECT 2 REPORT ELEMENTS POINTS TIMELINESS Project report submitted to Canvas by deadline 5 REFERENCE MAP Reference map (street level) with legend and caption present, and formatted properly (Completeness) 6 Reference map description names town, cites American FactFinder (Completeness) 2 TIGER features discussed as source data.
