Intro to GIS Workshop Now Available!

Interested in learning GIS (Geographic Information Systems)? Check out this great workshop coming up! 

GIS

This workshop will begin by presenting an overview of the basic concepts of Spatial Analysis and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Armed with an understanding of what GIS is, students will complete a hands-on tutorial introducing ESRI’s ArcGIS software. Topics covered during the first week’s lab will include working with GIS data, simple data queries, and map creation (symbolization, labeling, layout and export). Building on the basic concepts covered during the first week, week 2 will focus entirely on hands-on training in GIS for demographic research. Topics covered in the second week’s lab will include acquiring GIS and census data, synthesizing multiple data sources, and basic GIS analysis.

This workshop meets twice, Monday April 10th and Monday April 17th from 1pm to 4pm in Savery Hall 117 (CSSCR lab). Signup once to be registered for both meetings. The workshop assumes no prior knowledge of GIS.
