LNDL Georaphic Information Systems (GIS) Pop-up Class

Oct 11
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 6:00pm to 8:00pm Loyola Notre Dame Library Lab A

The Georaphic Information Systems (GIS) workshop will be taught by Robert Neff in Lab A. Participants will learn the various uses for GIS through interactive exercises.

By the end of the pop-up course students will have completed a spatial analysis and have a greater understanding for GIS. Participants will be able to use tools that help identify real-world problems using publicly accesible data. 

GIS is the dominant tool for spatial anaylsis because it works with all sectors of the economy, managing utilities and analysis for human-environmental systems and processes. Being able to work with GIS is a highly marketable skill and can be helpful for future courses.
