Location: 
D-Lab: Convening Room (356 Barrows Hall)
Description

The D-Lab, GIF and Library are launching a new working group focused on geospatial data, mapping and analysis. The group will meet weekly on Wednesdays in the D-Lab from 9:30-12:00. We will use this time for a mix of activities including talks, trainings, and group consulting. You can join us for one or more sessions or drop in for consulting - a full semester commitment is not necessary.

 

The group is open to people of all skill levels with the goal of learning from each other through mentorship and co-working.  We welcome your questions about finding geospatial data, working with the data in desktop GIS like ArcGIS or QGIS, online tools like ArcGIS Online and CARTO, or programming tools like R and Python.

 

Below is our tentative plan for the semester but we welcome input from participants to shape the agenda - so it is subject to change!
