Prosjektet mitt

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.

I like the idea of using your map to facilitate rides--very useful! If membership changes, your map would probably still be useful for a time before it has to be revamped on the GIS end.

It seems we'll be looking for the same base maps for geocoding (by address in Madison and by zip code in wider Dane County)--I'll let you know if (when!) I find something useful.

I have settled on doing a combination map of where people live with and without cars, hospitals and doctors, shopping areas, and any other places that the director thinks would be peritinent, so that rides can be arranged for getting members to and from group as well as any other carpooling that can take place on a day to day basis.
