GIS Mapping with Excel Fusion Tables: A Brown Bag Workshop with Dr. Robert S. Gold
Join us for a hands on brown bag workshop to learn how to create geographic information system (GIS) maps using software you already use – Microsoft Excel.™
GIS mapping is widely used in public health to visualize geo-located data. Microsoft Excel provides a series of tools that allow us to do many of the same kinds of visualizations as more expensive applications such as Arc GIS. In this workshop you’ll get hands on experience making some of these map-based visualizations by connecting data in simple spreadsheets to Google maps.
Bob Gold was the founding Dean of the University of Maryland School of Public Health and is currently a Professor in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health. He is also the School’s Director of Educational Innovation.
Sponsored by the Office of the Director of Educational Innovation and The IT Solutions Center. Feel free to bring your lunch.
