DEMO AND EXERCISE DATA DOWNLOADS
We will often use class demos (hands-on computer demonstrations).
All datasets for class demos are
compressed into sefl-extracting files. You can get the demo data in two ways.
first is to find the dataset on \scratch\gissg\demos and
second is to download it from BB (http://bb.hunter.cuny.edu,
see BB for instructions under assignments).
Then you should extract the data
into your U:\gissg\compex folder (or any other folder such as a removable disk
or your home computer). The default path for extracting files is to your U:
drive but you can change it during the extraction process.
Remember that you do not need to
keep all these files forever. Delete them once you are finished with the demo
script. You can always download the dataset again.
paths for class demos
target path on your U: drive
you have not done so yet, create a folder U:\gissg\compex on your U: drive (C:
drive if working on a home computer)
Downloading demo data in the lab
- Using Windows Explorer, find
- Inside this folder, find the
needed dataset: Demo2.exe, Demo3.exe, etc.
- Click on DemoX.exe
The dialog box will display the target path for extracting
the data. This path should read U:\gissg\compex
- Press ok to extract the data.
- Using Windows Explorer, view the
content of U:\gissg\compex to make sure that the data was extracted
to a correct path.
demo data from home (or lab)
While at home (or in the lab too), you can download the data
from the course webpages.
Go to the webpage that stores links to data sets. Remember that the page
address is case sensitive.

MASTERY EXERCISE DATA
- In Windows Explorer find
folder S:\scratch\gissg\MastData and look at its contents.
- Find file MastEx2.exe (or other
MastExX.exe) and double click on this file.
- Indicate that you want to
unzip the files into folder U:\gissg\MEx2 (this should be set by default
- Make sure that the datafile
were indeed unzipped into U:\gissg\MEx2
Finally, you need to create one more project environment
file to your mastery exercise data set.
- Open Environment dialog in
- Click new project
- Save new project as MEx2.env
at your local drive.
- Then use Browse to set
U:\gissg\MEx2 as you main working folder.
- DON'T FORGET TO CLICK ON Save
project TO SAVE THIS PATH INTO YOUR PROJECT ENVIRONMENT PATH.
That is all. All
your project files (this mastery exercise files) will be kept together in this
folder and you will read from and write new data to this folder. Because you
should always choose a different name for an output file, your input and
intermediate files will be saved as well.
Other mastery exercises will be upzipped into different folders. Make sure that
you choose the correct project environment file for each mastery exercise.
