ArcGIS is a Geographic Information System (GIS): a software program for working with maps and geographic data. ArcMap is the desktop mapping software of ArcGIS. A GIS allows you to work with any data that you know a location for (e.g., addresses, latitude/longitude, census locations, name of a place, etc.). ArcMap is available for 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 will learn how to navigate ArcMap, kinds of GIS data, how to add data to a map, basic symbology and labelling, how to filter data, and how to create a finished map.
