Vanderbilt Library GIS workshops, Halloween 2012

Making a map with GIS
Wed, Oct. 31, 2-3pm
Peabody Library Learning Commons
This session is for anyone that is interested in creating a map. It will serve as a fundamental building block for your future as a map-maker whether you need to present your data, answer a research question, or just show where something is located. You’ll learn some basic concepts of GIS and get started with the world’s most popular GIS software, and walk away with a map of your own.

Mapping your own data
Wed, Oct. 31, 3-4pm
Peabody Library Learning Commons
If you’re feeling inspired and ambitious about GIS after the first session, you can stay to learn to map your own data. Maybe you have a list of addresses, X,Y coordinates, or a spreadsheet of counties or zip codes. This session will show you how to display your data on a map. You can bring your own data, or use our sample datasets.

Costumes welcome!
