Discovering Data and Making Maps

Thursday, Feb 18, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:15pm

In this workshop you will discover and learn more about several "GIS light" databases, including Social Explorer, SimplyMap, and PolicyMap. We will look at these databases as both data sources and as simple map-making tools. You should leave this workshop knowing more about how to find data/make maps and have a firm understanding of how to apply these tools for various research projects.

No previous map-making skills are required for this workshop. 75 min.
