This workshop will introduce Carto as a tool for creating customized online maps and performing basic data analysis. We will learn how to find and add a historic basemap to Carto, import present-day geographic data, and analyze the data using a few of the new Carto Builder tools. Participants will get a hands-on experience using the Carto platform and will learn how to geocode point data in OpenRefine using GREL string functions. We will provide sample data, but feel free to bring your own if you have it.
