Data and Visualization Workshop Series

Looking for an open source option for GIS to make maps or analyze geospatial data? In this workshop we will demonstrate how to import and analyze data in QGIS and discuss the benefits of using QGIS over other GIS software. In the process, we'll go over some general GIS concepts such as layers, types of GIS files, and projections. This is an introductory class, and no prior GIS experience is needed.
