Learning New Applications

In the last couple of months I have managed to learn more about ArcMap than I ever could in an introduction GIS course. It really is true, what they say about academics and the workforce: you'll learn most of what you need to know on the job. Very true!  I've learned how to use Corel Draw as well, which is similar to a dumbed down version of Photoshop. We have so many maps here, it's unbelievable. I am officially a pro at georeferencing historic maps now. I love seeing where things used to be and how the landscape has evolved over time. I may need to implement some georeferencing in future conference presentations. Hmmm....
