Geographic information systems (GIS) are powerful tools for displaying and analyzing features on the earth’s surface. GIS is used extensively in academic and business settings.

This workshop is designed for anyone who is new to GIS or who needs a refresher about the basic principles and functions of a GIS. The workshop will focus on ArcGIS, the industry leader in software, but alternatives such as QGIS and Google Earth will also be discussed. Brief hands-on exercises will be included, and resources for further learning will be offered.
