Mapping is a great way to visualize and analyze information – and to tell stories. In this installment of Data 101, 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 when you are ready to take your first computer-based mapping class.
No computers will be used in this class, and there are no prerequisites.
The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh are partnering on a “Data 101” training series designed to build information literacy, mapping, and data visualization skills for people looking to get started in using data, or more-experienced users looking to brush-up on their skills.
