Visualizing Spatial Data

October 12, 2018

Michael Shensky, GIS and Geospatial Data Coordinator, UT Libraries

There’s more than one way to skin a cat make a map. This new take on an old adage speaks to the recent proliferation of software tools and online platforms for visualizing data spatially. This workshop will provide a broad overview of commonly used tools, from powerful open source GIS software like QGIS to new online web mapping platforms like ArcGIS Online.  If you have ever wondered how to make a map from a table of geospatial coordinates or a list of addresses – this session is for you.  Live demonstrations will showcase the diverse array of mapping tools that are available to UT faculty, staff, and students for creating engaging visualizations from a variety of geospatial datasets.
