Expand your experience with desktop GIS software and learn how to use analysis tools to query data, conduct spatial statistics, and analyze vector and raster data using the free programs QGIS and Geoda.

Previous GIS experience is required, such as taking the Intro to GIS workshop.

You will need to install QGIS and Geoda on your machine. A few days before the workshop we will send instructions for doing so along with the workshop Zoom link. There will be a troubleshooting session 30 minutes before the workshop begins for anyone who has trouble with the installation. 

We will be conducting the same workshop using ArcGIS Pro (open source software). If you are interested in exploring both softwares, we recommend only registering for one workshop and then completing additional exercises on your own (workshop materials will be posted on our website) as the general GIS concepts will be the same in each workshop.

MIT touchstone authentication is required to attend.
