Helena, your side by side set of assignments and solutions looks great

FYI - I've contacted the lead editor of the University Consortium for
Geographic Information Science (David DiBase, at Penn State -- Ian
Turton's colleague I imagine) about the possible use of their
Geographic Information Science & Technology Body of Knowledge  as an

Thanks and enjoy whatever holiday you might be celebrating, and I look
