GIS Workshop: Digitizing/Editing Data

Join us for the next Scholars’ Lab GIS Workshop: “Digitizing/Editing Data.”

Thursday, March 18

2 pm

in the Alderman Library Electronic Classroom.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to create and/or edit spatial data layers from georeferenced images and other sources in ArcGIS.

—————————————————————————-

And please plan to join us for these upcoming GIS workshops.

April 1: Finding and Appending Spatial Data – Participants will learn the best places to find spatial data and learn how to append tabular data to existing spatial data layers.  These techniques are especially great for demographic analysis.

April 15: Spatial Statistics – So now that you have all the data mapped, what does it mean?  Participants will learn the basics of geospatial statistics and the ArcGIS geospatial tools.

Thank you!
