Here’s my final map with all three instructed layers along with a scale bar, legend, north arrow, and title. Unfortunately, my screenshot is horrible quality. Also, I had to unzip all of the files to be able to drag them into ArcGIS.


P.S. Thanks, other logan for the idea of creating a whole layout rather than just a screenshot with the visible layers.
