Geocoding Data, Spatial Joins and Querying for Institutional Research and other projects requiring address locations, Presented by Vince DiNoto, Jefferson Community and Technical College
Monday, June 11, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
The concept of this workshop will be the development of the skills to take tabular address data and geocode the information, that the geocoded information will have a spatial orientation. The data sets can be projected in a geographical orientation and can be compared to demographical data such as race, gender, age, income and educational attainment. This workshop will concentrate on how logical questions can be composed to compare factors such majors, pass rates of gatekeeper courses, retention and compare them community demographics. Participants need no prior geospatial knowledge and may bring data sets from their own institution if they would like. Please contact the instructor on how to prepare the data sets.
When & Where
National Geospatial Technology Center (GeoTech Center)
The GeoTech Center hopes to increase the number, diversity, and quality of geospatial professionals through geospatial technology education at the community and technical college level. Transforming the preparation and continuing education of geospatial technicians to meet the national workforce demand will be done by:
Creating a national clearinghouse of exemplary geospatial curriculum materials and database Web services;
Increasing the quantity, quality and diversity of geospatial technicians to meet U.S. workforce needs;
Increasing the number of educators participating in geospatial professional development;
Sustaining the Center long-term by seeking collaborations and sources of funding to maintain and improve services and products.
