Mapping is a great way to visualize and analyze information – and to tell stories. In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn the principles of mapmaking using the latest in paper and marker-based technologies. You’ll understand how computers are used to plot addresses on a map, conduct basic spatial analysis, and update records in a database based on location. Along with a deeper-appreciation for computers, this class will provide you with a solid foundation of mapping concepts and processes, and get you prepared to take your first computer-based mapping class.
No computers will be used in this class, and there are no prerequisites.
The workshop was developed by the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
