Event Details

GIS is extremely powerful, but the language of maps can be confusing. Join us to discuss how we can effectively communicate within City Hall to build enthusiasm for mapping. We will explore some of the latest techniques for web mapping and spatial analysis.

The sheer number of tools beyond ArcGISDesktop can be intimidating. Where do you start? By learning the vocabulary and the landscape of geospatial technology, we can start to pick the best tools for the work we're seeking to accomplish and adequately assess which particular one is best for any given job.

Guest speakers will give a short presentation, move into discussion format then take questions from the audience.

Code for America

Code for America has a bold vision: to build a government that works for the American people in the digital age. Where services are simple, beautiful, and easy to use; outcomes are measurably better, and better costs less. Where we serve everyone equally and with dignity.


We believe this will be the biggest source of societal good for a generation. And that we all must build it together.


Since 2011, Code for America has worked with thousands of tech industry professionals to help hundreds of local governments take a user-centered, iterative, and data-driven approach to solving problems. Along the way, we’ve found interventions that have the potential to help not just thousands of people in one city, but millions of the most vulnerable Americans. We’ve figured out a way to debug the major government programs that help feed families in need, get job seekers appropriate training, and keep people out of jail. Now, Code for America is taking these services to scale across the country.


By signing up for this event we will email you news and updates from Code for America. You can update your subscription preferences at any time.
