We had a lunch and learn yesterday to get a refresher course on ArcMap. GIS is a powerful tool for transportation planning and design, and Oregon has SO MUCH publicly available data for public access. From everything from crash data and city boundaries, to plant life and natural hazards overlays, ArcMap helps planners, engineers, architects, environmental scientists, and many more, plan and build our communities.

We talked about best practices, most frequently used tools, and common uses in transportation planning.

As always, we also enjoyed some cold brew from the kegorator.
