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.

Instructions for downloading and installing ArcGIS Pro can be found online. 

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.
