Using Census Data in GIS Mapping ~ Two Day Workshop
The workshop focuses on using Census Data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in concert. This workshop is specifically designed for those involved in community planning, program design, proposal writing, needs assessments and fundraising.
The class gives you the step by step instructions to map data from your internal databases (anything from an Access Database to an Excel spreadsheet) and then “layer” or shade the map to show detailed Census data.
In other words, the workshop will teach you how to create compelling maps by bringing together:
Detailed Census Data - thus “shading” the map
for race, poverty, income, education, housing, etc.
*GIS Class Prerequisites
During the workshop you will use a copy of ArcView owned by Calm River Demographics. If you do not currently have GIS software, a 60 day evaluation copy of ArcView can be provided to you at no cost after the workshop.
We prefer, however, that participants acquire GIS software such as ArcGIS (ArcView)
or MapInfo prior to the workshop. Please contact us if you need additional information.
Our workshops are specially designed to meet the unique needs of community planners, municipalities, proposal writers, economic development councils, health care organizations, non-profits, analysts and other individuals interested in performing detailed demographic research and mapping.
The teaching philosophy of the workshops is “hands-on”~ during
the workshop each student has access to a PC on the internet. Workshop participants
receive an in-depth workbook, step-by-step how-to guides and a CD with maps,
sample data, extensive research articles and reference materials.
