This should not be that difficult, and once I learn how to do it, I should be all set. But right now, I am confused.
I created a database (the extension is .MDB) with about 60 records. Each record has a separate field containing the easting and northing for buildings on my campus (Towson University, in case anyone is interested). The database also has a field for the name of the building and the total area of the building, but it is the location fields that interest me right now.
I don't understand how to get those points plotted on my map.
If someone could tell me how to do this, I would be grateful.
Once I do get those points plotted, then, as I understand the procedure, I should somehow create a layer file for them. Is that correct?
And I guess that I want to save the data as a shapefile, right? Because the last thing that I need to do is spacial statistics on my x,y data. In particular, I want to find the mean and standard deviation of the points.
