Here's the deal:
- All the tutorials for GIS is located in
"Y:\arcview\AV_GIS30\AVTUTOR". By default, GIS should
try to save to and open from the user's account "u:\win\My
Documents\". GIS should put temporary scratch files
(ongoing calculations, etc) in "C:\Windows\Temporary Files\".
- The various plugins may not automatically appear after a
machine's file system is first installed. To get the
plugins, start up GIS. Go to the "File" menu and choose
"Extensions". Select any of the listed extensions (and
there are a lot!) to make them appear in GIS.
- The location and size of the GIS window is not persistent, so
the user will need to re-maximize and arrange the GIS window
every time they start it up. The top of the window will
disappear off the top of the desktop under the following
- Many of the extensions are enabled, and
- The user chooses one of the startup options (Open a
project, start with a new project, or start with a new
view) instead of pressing the "Cancel" button.
While like this, the user cannot move the GIS window
around, because they cannot click on the title bar.
Instead the user will need to right-click on
the "Arcview GIS" startbar task, and choose either
"Maximize" or "Minimize".
- The "Model Builder" extension (came with the ArcView Spatial
Analyst software) requires IE 5.0. Since I haven't
gotten IE 5.0 working properly at the TCC, use this component
with caution. All other components should function
That should wrap up everything with Arcview GIS. Everything that
came with the software is installed, and should work.
