This workshop is designed to support public health researchers to become familiar with some basic spatial analyses (overlays, clips, buffers, and unions) and plugins available in the QGIS mapping software application. Participants will receive hands-on instruction related to geographic coordinate systems and the projection of spatial data which are essential first steps in conducting accurate analyses of geographic data. Prior GIS experience would be helpful.
All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Registration is required and is first come, first served. Register here.
