Introduction to Mapping

Francesca Giannetti

What kind of information should be mapped? Which tool is best for the job? If you’ve ever found yourself asking either of these questions – or any other about getting started with mapping – this workshop is for you. We’ll begin with a primer how to identify what kind of data is best suited by a map and what data is necessary to make a map. Then, we’ll explain how to get started with a few common mapping programs (StoryMap JS, Palladio, Tableau, Carto) and evaluate what kinds of uses each is best suited to.

When: October 11, 10-11:30 a.m.
