Working with and Presenting Geographic Information (UTSC)

November 8 @ 2:30 pm 5:30 pm EST

Presenter: Glenn Brauen, Assistant Professor—Teaching Stream, Human Geography

This workshop will provide an overview of geographic information for students who have data they want to map or analyze to understand if what they are studying demonstrates variability across space (e.g., across an environmental region, between neighbourhoods in a city region).  A wide variety of tools for working with geographic data are now available from commercial vendors, open source projects, and online hosted services. The workshop will present an overview of tools and services that participants could use to perform some basic management of geographic data and to publish web maps of their data.  Participants will have access to computers running software to be demonstrated and a sample dataset will be available for participants to work with.  Participants are encouraged to bring geographic data or descriptions of data they are working with for a Q&A session at the end of the workshop.
