This semester, Yale University’s GIS experts are putting together a series of workshops at the introductory and intermediate level for both Esri and open source platforms.

Workshops include a wide range of topics, including: 

- introducing basic concepts of geographic information systems through the use of open-source GIS software

- tools for spatial analysis

- designing web maps with your own data

All are welcome to attend, and registration links are available for each separate workshop below.


INTRO TO GIS: QGIS

Date:                  Friday, September 22, 2017

Time:                  10:00am - 12:00pm

Location:            KBT C27 (Computer Classroom) Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI)

RSVP Required: http://schedule.yale.edu/event/3586968

This workshop will introduce basic concepts of geographic information systems through the use of QGIS, a free and open-source GIS that can be used on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux platforms.


INTERMEDIATE GIS: ARCGIS

Date:                  Friday, September 29, 2017

Time:                  1:30pm - 3:30pm

Location:            KBT C27 (Computer Classroom) Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI)

RSVP Required: http://schedule.yale.edu/event/3586977

This workshop will build upon the Introduction to GIS workshop by introducing students to a variety of tools for spatial analysis. Students will use the ArcGIS software suite to load, manipulate, analyze, and visualize data. We will consider strategies for working with both vector and raster data.


INTRODUCTION TO STORY MAPS

Date:                  Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Time:                  2:00pm - 3:30pm

Location:            Bass Library, L06

RSVP Required: http://schedule.yale.edu/event/3592547

Learn how to combine texts, images, and videos alongside maps using Esri’s free Story Maps platform. In this workshop, participants will learn how to design a web-map, explore different Story Maps templates for showcasing research, and develop best practices to avoid copyright infringement.

Computers and sample data will be available for use. Participants are also welcome to bring their own data.


INTERMEDIATE GIS: QGIS

Date:                  Friday, October 27, 2017

Time:                  1:30pm - 3:30pm

Location:            KBT C27 (Computer Classroom) Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI)

RSVP Required: http://schedule.yale.edu/event/3586995

This workshop builds upon the “Intro to GIS: QGIS” workshop and will include a survey of tools for spatial analysis.

Participants should have some familiarity with GIS and QGIS (possibly from the “Intro to GIS: QGIS” workshop) or be experienced users of ArcGIS without any experience in QGIS. Participants do not need to have any Python or R experience.
