Introduction to Spatial Visualization & Analysis with Carto

Friday, February 01, 2019 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Building 14, 14N-132
160 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

This workshop will introduce Carto as a tool for creating customized online maps and performing basic data analysis. We will learn how to find and add a historic basemap to Carto, import present-day geographic data, and analyze the data using a few of the new Carto Builder tools. Participants will get a hands-on experience using the Carto platform and will learn how to geocode point data in OpenRefine using GREL string functions. We will provide sample data, but feel free to bring your own if you have it.
