QGIS Mapping Toolbox for Public Health Researchers

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

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.

Prior to the workshop, participants should install QGIS software. If you need help installing these, please schedule a Coding Consultation and we'd be glad to help you.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Registration is required and is first come, first served. Register here.

This workshop is part of the Mapping Data with GIS series which offers introductory and in-depth sessions working with location data and geographic information systems software. Explore the full list of Mapping Data with GIS workshops offered this semester. If you're working on a GIS project and need personalized assistance, consider booking a consultation with a GIS specialist.
