Getting Started with ArcGIS Online
About this Event
Explore the world of geographic information systems (GIS), powerful mapping and analysis tools for spatial data, during this workshop on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, from 9 a.m.- noon.
With a focus on the cloud-based ArcGIS Online mapping platform, the workshop will teach you how to make a map online, easily add data to it, then share it widely. You will become familiar with the concept of data layers, a key concept used in GIS; learn how to geocode addresses for data points; and understand how cartographic principles apply to creating maps that present data clearly and fairly.
This workshop is co-sponsored by UD’s IT Client Support and Services. It will be co-taught by John Stevenson, interim head of the Multimedia Collections and Services Department for UD Library, Museums and Press, and Olena Smith, lead geospatial information consultant for IT Client Support and Services.
While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited. This workshop is open to UD students, faculty and staff.
