Preparing for Wednesday, March 1

Site report #2 is due, posted to the OpenLab, on Friday, March 3 by 5pm. Make a copy of the site report template, complete the document with your own text and images, save as a reduced size PDF, and upload to the OpenLab course site, as you did with site report #1.

This site report includes a map. You can edit the map by opening it as a drawing in google, then use the line and shape tools and word art or text boxes to edit and annotate the map (help here). Use Snagit or your favorite image editing software if you prefer. It is fine to print out the map, draw and annotate it, and then scan and paste it into your report.

On Wednesday, we’ll discuss how to use the internet for place-based research, including real estate and buildings research. Please review the guide to primary, secondary, tertiary sources and also take a look at the place-based research guide.
