Location, Location, Location: Creating Maps of Your Data

Learn how to create maps of location data, like places and addresses, in this introductory workshop. Participants will receive a basic introduction to the library's PolicyMap database as a tool for quickly finding location datasets. No prior Geographic Information Systems (GIS) experience is required.

This workshop is part of the Mapping Your Data series which offers introductory and in-depth sessions working with location data and geographic information systems (GIS) software. If you're working on a mapping project and need personalized assistance, consider booking a consultation with a GIS specialist.

This workshop is also part of the Visualizing Data and Presenting Your Research series for those looking for creative and effective ways to communicate their research findings to wide audience. Workshops focus on the tools for visual communication using maps, images, research posters, podcasts, video, etc. If you need personalized assistance with a data visualization project, consider booking a consultation with one of our librarian-experts. Learn more about our services for digital storytelling and multimedia and working with data.
