Assignment #4: Layers and polygons


A series of exercises involving the use of layers and the creation of polygons. Since these deal with layers, there is no need to print these - the layers wouldn't be visible anyway.

POST THESE ON YOUR WEBSITE - DO NOT PRINT THESE EXERCISES

  1. Create a five layer landscape map with a background and label as lake, river, road, and building. Add features for each label. Save as a PNG and PDF file (proj4a.png; proj4a.pdf). Make PNG file clickable to PDF. Check if layers can be selected within Acrobat Reader in the PDF file.
      • PDF (This is how I check the layers!)

     

  2. Use multiple layers to create an irregular shape with outlines that are dashed, red, green and blue. Fill with a shading. Save as a PNG and PDF file (proj4b.png; proj4b.pdf). Make PNG file clickable to PDF.
  3. Create polygons from arcs after a raster-to-vector conversion.
