Mod 4: Hurricanes

This week, our assignment was to create two maps. The first being a map that shows the path of Hurricane Sandy. We were given an excel file (contained coordinates and attributes) and had to plot the x,y points. With the points created, we could draw a path with the point to line tool. With the attributes in the excel file, I could add them to the map showing wind speeds and pressures.

The second map was to do a damage assessment of when Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New Jersey. I used aerial raster mosaics, pre-storm and post-storm. I used the Effects Tool to go back and forth between the images and determine where the damage had occurred. Next, I created point for each parcel and gave attributes to each point (level of damage).
