So, you want to create a map? Introduction to GIS
Tue, March 28, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
Are you interested in using a map to tell your research story? to explore your data? to illustrate your argument? This workshop will offer an approachable introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and its uses: storage, capture, edition, analysis and visualization of data. In the first part of the workshop we will look at the basics of GIS, including terminology, types of data, available software and file formats. In the second part of the workshop we will do basic exercises in which you will be able to learn how to start a project, draw features, fill information and perform basic geospatial analysis on your data. We will use mainly QGIS and also look at Carto Builder during the workshop.
