Data 101: Mapping

Mapping is a great way to visualize and analyze information – and to tell stories. In this installment of our Data 101 training series, you’ll learn the principles of map-making using the latest in paper and marker-based technologies. You’ll understand how computers are used to plot addresses on a map, conduct basic spatial analysis, and update records in a database based on location. Along with a deeper appreciation for computers, this class will provide you with a solid foundation of mapping concepts and processes, and get you prepared to take your first computer-based mapping class. No computers will be used in this class, and there are no prerequisites. Registration Required.
