GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM
OF LOCAL RESCUE SQUADS
For this project a GPS was
used to gather the coordinates of four local rescue squads.
Demographic data was collected from each rescue squad about the number of life-saving vehicles, number of volunteers, captain, mailing address, phone number, and the average calls per year.
All data gathered was entered into ArcView GIS 3.2a, and an information system was created.
This geographic information system is designed so that when a star is clicked a table with that squad's data will appear on the screen!
