2. GETTING STARTED Note that you must be online for the links in this document to work.
In this first section I have prepared a simple mapping project that will help to introduce you to digital mapping. It is based on U.S. Census Tiger 2000 files (more on this later) and ArcExplorer®, a free GIS program from ESRI. The sample project covers my home county, Santa Cruz, California. We will work on this together - step-by-step. First you will download ArcExplorer®, the free GIS from ESRI®, and install it. Then you will download the mapping project that I have prepared. Later on you will learn how to create your own mapping project and add a variety of map layers. One way to think about all of this is to imagine a paper map -- a base map -- that may have such features as the outline of county, perhaps some topography, major roads, etc. If you wanted a single map with more than that, some features might obscure others. The solution to this is to add map layers. Layers can be thought of as transparencies that you would place on top of your paper map allowing you to see the base map as well as the added features as you add, remove and change the order of the layers. As you work with ArcExplorer® this will become clear.
Downloading ArcExplorer® 
The first thing to do is to download the GIS viewer, ArcExplorer®.
