Intro to GIS - Final Project

In this final project we were tasked with creating four maps focused on a transmission line that went between Sarasota and Manatee counties. The different maps showed different aspects of the surrounding area. The transmission line impacts schools, daycare's, homes, and environmentally sensitive lands which means that the placement or direction of the line would need to change and/or people would have to move.
I felt that the hardest map to create was the one for the centerline, mostly because we had never done a lab for this exercise before. After many failed attempts and Google searches later, a fellow classmate showed me how to do it. But I thought that the concept of the center line was really cool and reminded me of the directional line that you get when you get directions from Google maps.
