Mapping is a great way to visualize and analyze information – and to tell stories. In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn the principles of mapmaking using the latest in paper and marker-based technologies. You’ll understand 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.

Facilitated by the Western Pennsylvania Region Data Center and the City of Pittsburgh Data Analytics Team.
