Mapping Geographic Data with ArcGIS

January 29, 2021 - 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm (already occurred)
TBA
  • Registration Required

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a powerful tool to discover spatial relationships and illuminate your research with intuitive maps:

• Illustrate historic sites and extract features from old maps;
• Spatially correlate census, economic, and other data;
• Display geologic formations and delineate watersheds;
• Track human, animal, and plant populations; and
• Map locations from a GPS receiver.

You will learn about:

• Constructing and Sharing Maps (including with Google Earth);
• Mapping Named Data (including census data and street addresses);
• Mapping Coordinate Data (including using a GPS receiver);
• Mapping Image Data (including scanned maps and satellite data); and
• Extracting Map Features

This workshop will begin with an in-person hands-on session to get you started, and will run asynchronously thereafter, with a couple of check-ins per week, ending around February 11.
