Wrangling Data in to Maps & GIS Software

Want to learn how to wrangle data in maps and GIS software? Come to Research Computing’s mapping and GIS workshop on Monday, January 30th, 2017 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm in the 37 Dewey Field Road Instructional Center (first floor) to learn more. We’ll use various tools to bring datasets in mapping and GIS software, and make a map for presentation using the data with existing map base layers. We will also discuss sources of geospatial data and digital map making techniques.

No experience is necessary to attend this Research Computing workshop.

Upcoming workshop reminder: GIS Lite Workshop

Tuesday, December 6th, 10am – 12pm, we will host a GIS Lite workshop that will cover some basic mapping and GIS tools. These lightweight tools allow access to simple geographic analysis, without having to learn a full-function GIS system. Lucinda Hall from the Dartmouth College Library and Steve Gaughan from Research Computing will be presenting.

If you are interested in attending the workshop, please sign up soon at the following Libcal link:

http://libcal.dartmouth.edu/event/2964538

We will cover Social Explorer, ArcGIS Online and other tools as time allows. With these tools we will look at US Census Bureau data, imagery, and cultural statistics. We will also introduce and review other mapping sites listed on the Web GIS Research Guide.

The workshop will be held in the 37 Dewey Field Road Building’s Instructional Center on the First Floor. From Baker Library, head north towards the 1 Rope Ferry Road Building and Thomas Hall. 37 Dewey Field Road is at the north end of the Maynard Street parking lot.

Did you know that the R statistical package has Geographic Information Systems
and mapping tools? Various R packages can be imported to analyze and display
spatial data right in the R Studio environment. Come to our workshop on
Wednesday, October 26th, from 2:00pm -3:30pm in the 37 Dewey Field Road
Instructional Center (first floor) to learn more about these tools. No
experience is necessary to attend the workshop. Click for more information and
for a link to register.

Various R packages can be imported to analyze and display spatial data right in
R studio. During this session, we will work with R and spatial datasets and
show techniques for finding spatial and non-spatial data for use in R and GIS
software. No experience is necessary to attend the workshop. If you are
interested in attending the workshop, please sign up soon at the following
