My project in a nutshell:
I am working with a local group for older adults who like to get together and have a good time on Friday afternoons during the fall, winter and summer.
Most of my problems so far revolve around that very problem. It is summer so...
A) The director is on vacation until the end of this week.
B) The membership - although rather stable - might go up or down a few by next fall.
C) I have been having problems finding a map to download of the Madison Metro area.
D) I am feeling camaraderie with my brothers and sisters in GIS and have been experiencing some rather minor, but rather irritating problems on occasion. - (This is mostly a problem with not feeling 1oo% comfortable with what I have learned, or not remembering exactly how to do it.)
My task is thus:
1) To map out the area, ideally addresses but perhaps neighborhoods, where members live, so that a buddy system and carpool system can be set up.
2) My audience is particularly the director of the program, as she will use it to set up the above-mentioned programs. Perhaps, the participants can use the map, to see who lives around them.
3) I should very soon have a list of addresses of members. (See A above) I would like to geocode within Madison Metro and then perhaps just by zip code within Dane Co.
