ONLINE: Data Skills – Introduction to GIS using ArcGIS Online

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

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 Online can be used in your browser on any computer and is available to the University community by requesting an account. ArcGIS Online has less mapping capability than ArcMap but is easier to use and to learn. Please note that ArcGIS Online is not recommended if you want to save or download your finished map for publication as it is intended for creating online maps.

In this workshop we will learn how to navigate ArcGIS Online, kinds of GIS data, how to add data to a map, basic symbology and labelling, how to manually add data to your map, and how to access analysis functions.

When you register for this workshop you are committing to attend the entire workshop unless otherwise confirmed with the instructor. If you are suddenly not able to attend, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can offer your spot to someone on our waiting list.

You must attend this workshop on a computer (not a mobile device).
