The book “ArcGIS and the Digital City” by William E. Huxold, Eric M. Fowler, and Brian Parr walks users through exercises designed to acquaint them with the use of GIS for local government. The data included with this book includes CAD files, shapefiles, geodatabases, tabular data, and raster images of an imaginary city in the U.S.A. called ArcCity.
To view and extract vector and raster data from this CD, you may use ArcView 3.x or ArcGIS 9.x, available on the public workstations at the Walter Hitschfeld Geographic Information Centre. ArcGIS 9.x is strongly recommended, as the book exercises use ArcGIS 9.x. Please note that Photoshop is available to view the image data on the workstations.
