Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be potentially useful in almost any area of research. The availability of more user-friendly GIS software and the proliferation of open spatial data has made it easier for non-GIS experts to spatially visualize and analyze data. Through some simple hands-on exercises, this session will introduce participants to the basics of using GIS software to work with spatial data. No prior experience is required.
This course will use ArcGIS Online. Please register for an account prior to attending.
