About this Lab: This Lab will be very similar to Lab #9. In this case you will use the ARC GIS online to create similar maps.

Please watch the videos in the playlistfirst - it shows you how to accessready to use social and economic layers of the ‘Living Atlas' in ArcGIS online.

There are 3 videos in the playlist.

1. Shows you how to login into ArcGIS online.

2. A brief review of Living Atlas(and some instructions for how to answer these questions)

3. How to change classes (also referred to as cut points here in the lab).

4. Change base maps and make them aesthetically pleasing.

5. Export maps for the lab submission.

Use layers from the Living Atlas called "ACS Median Household Income Variables"and create a Map of Philadelphia that has the following components

a) 2013-2017 Income - Median Household Income.

b) Tract Data with three classes.

c) Shaded Area Map in Green. Shade tracts with household income over $100000 darkest green and those with income below $50,000 as dark grey.
