Intro text (homepage): 
This exercise introduces raster calculations. It is part two of an introductory module on spatial analysis using QGIS. What is the effective reach of the New York City urban area? We will use a raster dataset from the National Land Cover Database to look at the extents of NYC urban area and compare it to other definitions of the effective boundaries of New York City. In addition, the land cover data will help us to become familiarized with the qualities of raster data as well as raster calculations.
