Data 101 Introduction to Mapping

September 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hosted by the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center

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 mapmaking using the latest in paper and marker-based technologies. You’ll learn 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.
