Student Comments

I wanted to let you know about the project that resulted from the ArcGIS JavaScript class I recently took with you. The site is, which I did through my job at AAAS and in cooperation with Amnesty International, USA. On the site, there is a section called interactive maps which utilizes a human rights database and maps I created. I used a variety of techniques from the course in the creation of the site and the things I learned were invaluable in its creation.
