MetroBoston DataCommon user trainings are held every month at offices of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council in downtown Boston. Attendees include town planners, government employees, staff from non-profit organizations and private research organizations, and others. Participants receive an orientation to the various components of the MetroBoston DataCommon, and complete a hands-on tutorial of the DataMap Tool to create their own customized maps.
The two hour session will include:
- quickly access statistics about your city or town;
- conduct analysis with social and economic data;
- customize your own visualizations;
