GIS Fall Meetups

GIS Training Meetup

October 6, Bass Library, L06 B from 10:00am-12:00pm

Interested in working with maps? Looking to learn GIS fundamentals at your own pace? Join the DHLab and CSSSI during this GIS Training Meetup. Esri, a leader in GIS software, has created an interactive, online course that introduces the basics of geographic information systems. During the GIS Training Meetup, participants will work through the course in a group setting, with the GIS Librarian and DHLab staff on hand to assist with questions.
 
  • Once you complete the training session, you will be able to:
  • Define GIS
  • Differentiate between vector and raster data
  • Navigate a GIS map
  • Query the map for location and attribute information
  • And more!
Lab computers will be provided, but please bring headphones for listening to the video components.
 
Space is limited. To register for this workshop, visit the YUL Instruction Calendar. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to sign up!
