Event description

Description

BetaNYC has designed tools and customized trainings specifically intended to help Community Boards access, analyze, map and use data to inform decision-making. These insights come from a three year partnership with the Manhattan Borough President’s Office.


This workshop will extend your understanding of data into the spatial dimension, teaching you to make maps using Carto, a web-based mapping platform. Specifically you will learn how to map NYC open data, import a boundary shapefile into a map, and join a boundary file with Census information in order to map socio-demographics of NYC communities. Come ready to take your understanding of data into the spatial realm!


To participate in this class we highly recommend you bring a laptop and power adapter. This class will not work on Chromebooks, iOS phones or tablets, nor on Android devices.

Class time 90 mins. We start promptly at 5:20.


Tickets are free and our classroom is limited to 25 people. We're asking for a suggested donation of $30.


STATUS: beta! You can access our training material via this google drive link.
