Data Skills: GIS 2 - Intermediate - Data Analysis and Visualization

ArcGIS is a Geographic Information System (GIS);  a software program for working with maps and geographic data.  A GIS allows you to work with any data that you know a location for (eg. addresses, latitude / longitude, census locations, name of a place...).  ArcGIS is available on all the Library computers, also by download to the University community.   Although similar in some ways to online mapping sites, ArcGIS has greater analytical capabilities and allows you more input and control over your map.  In this workshop we’ll learn further GIS tools, work with tables, and begin working with raster data.

You must have ArcGIS installed on your computer prior to the workshop or you can access the software from the Library via Remote Desktop (lib.uoguelph.ca). You will not have time during the session to install the software. You must attend this workshop on a computer (not a mobile device). We cannot troubleshoot software or installations during the session.   If you are unable to install or access the software please contact the presenter so we can give your seat to someone on the waiting list. Software is available from the CCS Software Distribution Site. You will find you are able to particpate more fully if you have a 2nd screen on your computer.

If you have any issues with your install, please contact the IT Help Desk.

Please note: this workshop will take place online via Zoom. A reminder email with the meeting link will be emailed to you 24 hours before the workshop.
