Fun with GIS Software: Mapping Your Research

Date: 31 January 2015, 10am – 4pm

Location: Harriet Irving Library, Rm. 112 (Learning Lab)

Instructor: Siobhan Hanratty (hanratty@unb.ca)

 

Have you ever wanted to map your data, but weren’t sure where to start? If so this workshop is for you. UNB Libraries Data/GIS Librarian, Siobhan Hanratty, will introduce you to some basic concepts which will help you on your way. During this workshop you will explore sources of geospatial data and decide which is best suited to your needs; download and clip/extract/select your geography; join your own numeric data to the geospatial data; and visualize your newly joined datasets according to your needs.

During this workshop you will be provided with data; however, time and circumstances permitting, you may have an opportunity to work with your own data, so feel free to bring it along.

Space is limited, and regsitration is required. The workshop is free of charge to students, faculty and staff of UNB, and is intended for the absolute beginner. No experience with GIS software necessary!
