GeoHealth Network: Make Your First Map (ArcGIS workshop)

About

Join us a FREE ArcGIS skills workshop! This event will take place in the GIS computer lab in the Sidney Smith Hall Basement (Room 620, labelled “G” on elevator). Our team will guide you through 2016 Statistics Canada census data, and help you select the geographic regions most appropriate to make a map of the City of Toronto. We will identify one variable, such as population or household income, and join this information to the appropriate geographic region using GIS software. To finish our map, we will guide you through basic cartographic principles to visualize the data in your map across Toronto.

This workshop requires no personal computer or prior knowledge of the census or GIS software, only a keen interest to learn. You will walk away with your first map, as well as new skills that can be used to visualize any other census data on a map, and potentially pair with alternate data that is reported using census regions.

This workshop is FREE, however space is limited and registration will be first-come, first-served. Please email any accessibility requests or concerns to info@geohealthnetwork.com. It is important to us that everyone feels they can meaningfully participate in this workshop.

Register here.

Happy Mapping,
