Spatial Analysis

Cities With Population Of 25,000 Or More
(Light Blue Dots)
It took a while to finally get ArcGIS to install on a Mac. But once I figured out how, and began this lab I actually had a fun time with it. In the beginning of the lab I was a little confused with the program due to it having so many capabilities. After messing around with the program for a little while I finally got it figured out. For this lab I chose Maine as my state to work with. For the state of Maine I looked at 3 things.            First, I looked at cities with a population of 25,000 or more.  These cities appear on the make as the light blue dots. Next, I looked at what States touch Maine. As you can see in the Map below only New Hampshire touches Maine. Lastly, I Found all the main roads that intersect Maine. After doing this lab I feel much more comfortable with the program.
