One important thing that writing this final paper has taught me is the importance of always, always, always keeping a lab notebook. Oh, yes, I kept one in those freshman and sophomore chemistry and biology classes, and my biotechnology courses drummed into me the importance of such notebooks as legal documents in an industrial-science setting, but I always associated them with the "squishy sciences". For some reason, it never occurred to me to keep one in the dry digital world of Geographic Information Systems.
Not until now.
Now, I find myself making references to stuff I did more than a year ago and wondering just what quantifiable data I have to record about it.
Ah, well. Lesson for the future.
Back to work!
