ArcGIS
« on: September 10, 2016, 09:31:18 PM »
Hi,

I recently bought ArcGIS hoping to use it to present fieldwork data.  It was demonstrated at an Edexcel launch event and it seemed easy to import data from an excel worksheet.  However, I can't work out how to do it.  If anyone can help, that'd be great.

Thanks,

Hi
Your data needs to be saved as a CSV file rather than XLS format. It will then work - keep the headings on the columns for labelling purposes.
This example might help for volcanic risk on Hawaii

Worth following Jason Sawle @GIS4SCHOOLS on Twitter - he will usually reply to queries like this very promptly.

Hi, I'm hoping you can help me by directing me to the contact so I can buy ArcGIS as two of us in my Dept have hunted round the website and it doesn't have any obvious place to buy! Thank you so much in advance for any tips, I'd love to get my Yr 13 and 9s using it for Tectonics. Cheers, Alice
