Basics of Mapping

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This class will introduce you to analyzing data for stories by using mapping software. More than a tool for location, mapping software can help you uncover stories that others miss. The sessions will use free mapping software and also give a brief description of the different free software available online. You are not expected to have any mapping skills beforehand, but if you know how to use a spreadsheet, that would be helpful. 

Those taking our hands-on data training should bring their own laptops or tablets and, if possible, have Microsoft Excel (the spreadsheet software) loaded on their computers.

We'll send special instructions by email to those registered to this session.
