3.) How do I figure out if my proposed research site is in conflict with other research or facilities?
4.) I have chosen a research site. How do I get this research site mapped?
5.) How do I take RMBL GIS datasets with me when I leave RMBL?
6.) How do I view my GPS data on an aerial photo?
7.) How do I create a map with GPS data and RMBL GIS datasets (for powerpoint, for example)?
8.) How do I save and move my GIS data?
9.) What spatial (GIS) datasets are available from RMBL?
10.) What are attribute data and how do I view them?
11.) If I have written down GPS coordinates (lat/long; UTM), how do I get them on a GIS map?
12.) What are the basic tools and section of the ArcMap toolbar?
