Creating a Folder to Store Your Placemark(s)
The Clean Watersheds project’s goal is to create a composite
layer of various schools water quality data so the students canlook at broad themes related to water quality and usage.Therefore it is important
to keep each schools’ data separated
into folders that can easily be added to our composite layer.11.
To create a folder to store your placemarks, move your mouse
over the “My Places” icon in the places panel and then right
-clickwith your mouse.12.
Choose “Add” from the menu and then move your mouse
towardthe arrow for the pop-out window.13.
Choose the “Folder” option.
Give the Folder a title and also include your name (for example
Thomas). This will help the teacher know whichplacemark belongs to which student.
If you are a school with many test sites, or many placemarks,name your folder with the name of your school and the semester(for example
The Walker School Spring 2009).
