Students will learn about the different ways in which entities in the real world are represented as geographic data. They will be introduced to QGIS, an open-source Geographic Information System (GIS) tool for working with geographic data. By the end of this two-hour long workshop, students will be introduced to projections and coordinate systems and explore the impact of coordinate reference systems (CRSs) on the shape and area of visualized data, as well as understand how to load, display, symbolize, and explore different types of geographic data using QGIS.
