Building 7, 7-238 (GIS & Data Lab)

Learn the basics of visualizing geographic information and creating your own maps in a Geographic Information System (GIS). We will introduce open source and proprietary mapping and GIS software options and let attendees choose to work through exercises using ESRI ArcGIS (proprietary) and/or Quantum GIS (QGIS) (open source). Learn how to read and interpret maps and data and use basic cartography principles to create maps that can be used in reports and presentations.
The workshop will be held in the GIS & Data Lab, which is on the 1st floor of Rotch LIbrary (7-238).
