Intro to GIS

With the new semester, we are offering four Intro to GIS workshops, two in EDS and two at the CUMC Health Sciences Library.

The workshops held in EDS will use ESRI ArcGIS software while the ones at CUMC will use QGIS.

Both will have the same content and similar hands-on exercises just using different software.

The first workshop is next week Friday 1/30 from 10:30 – 12:30pm held in EDS, registration is now open.

All of the workshops are two hours long and give an overview of
–        GIS
–        data models
–        basic spatial analysis
–        projections
–        working with your own data
–        finding data

No prior experience with GIS is necessary to attend, the workshop is meant for those without any experience or would like a refresher on the basics.
