Mapmaking 101: Introduction to GIS Software

Mapmaking 101: Introduction to GIS Software

This workshop will help participants become comfortable with the key concepts of GIS and have them download and install ArcGIS Pro and make some basic maps of data. It will help learners access the software needed to make maps, introduce them to some of the words and phrases used by people who make maps, and become familiar with accessing sources of data for mapping and creating their own maps.

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.
