Intro to Geospatial Data Online
Geospatial data is data about objects or features on or near the surface of the Earth and can be mapped using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software. This workshop introduces participants to geospatial data formats and concepts as well as sources for this data.
*Presented by Christine Homuth (Spatial Information Specialist). This virtual workshop will not be recorded, though a text-based GitHub tutorial on the same material will be posted shortly afterwards. This tutorial will be available on the Sherman Centre's "Online Learning" webpage.
