Critical Thinking with your Peers:
To demonstrate you have completed the practice exercises, post to the Excel 3D Maps PRACTICE forum. Please include these items in your posting:
- 2 points: Attach one MP4 data tour movie file (<20 seconds) created during the practice exercises (with data from the examples on pizza places or vacations priorities).
- 4 points: Provide a self-evaluation of your posted tour, indicating if you included or forgot to address EACH of these items (each comment is worth 1 point):
- Tour title – a title in a readable font has been added to the tour
- Legend has a title – the title is appropriate for the scene in view (and not “Layer 1”)
- Legend has been resized/moved – all colors/options can be viewed/read during tour
- Data touring, basic movements – tour includes multiple scenes with movement within and between scenes (e.g., zooming in/out between scenes, rotating to another map area for the next scene, etc.)
