      • Text for description of baylands data source:
        This dataset was adapted from the SFEI_modern_baylands_poly_with_crosswalk.shp dataset, part of the San Francisco Bay Area EcoAtlas, and downloaded from the San Francisco Estuary Institute at www.sfei.org/ecoatlas. The dataset was then simplified for use during this tutorial, to show only the "LEVEL2" (renamed to “CLASS”) attributes: baylands, bays and channels, and watersheds. Images were then added to the attribute table for the purposes of this exercise.
      • HTML code for info balloon:
        <div class='googeb-info-window' style='font-family: sans-serif; width: 200px'>
        <b>{CLASS}</b><br>
