Week 11 - Spatial Analysis of Vector & Raster Data/Vector Analysis

Weeks 9, 10 and 11 covered spatial analysis of vector and raster data, though there was no map created in weeks 9 and 10. In week 11 we created a map of DeSoto National Forest, with campsite areas that follow a number of specific restrictions. 

Using ArcMap I created buffer zones of certain size around lakes, rivers and roads, than using the Union tool I combined them into a single layer. Then using Erase tool I removed all the possible campsite areas that were also conservation areas. Each step created a new file, which I added to my geodatabase file.
