GIS Software and Data Analytics

This workshop introduced Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the context of data analytics. Many data formats and structures exist that allow analysts to take advantage of existing open source spatial analysis tools, which allow for the integration of existing data and effective communication of results. The workshop was based on the free, open-source program QGIS, so participants left with competencies in GIS, in addition to a fully functioning software package capable of many features offered by more expensive applications such as ArcGIS.
