Discovering Data, Making Maps, and Telling a Story

Wednesday, Oct 12, 2016 - 10:00am to 11:00am

In this workshop you will discover and learn more about several databases and online platforms that provide access to data and the provide the opportunity to make maps, including Social Explorer, SimplyMap, PolicyMap, Carto, and Odyssey JS. We will look at these resources 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. We will have plenty of time for conversation and questions. This workshop is intended for a beginner audience and no map-making skills are needed.

Taught by Andy Rutkowski, Geospatial Librarian
