Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be a powerful research tool for solving problems in and across a wide range of disciplines. If your research question has a geographic component, GIS data and tools can be integral to informing your analysis and communicating spatial patterns to your audience. In this workshop, participants will:

  • Be introduced to key concepts for using GIS in research
  • Learn more about common GIS data formats
  • Explore OSU Libraries’ and public databases where GIS data can be retrieved

BYOD – Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops or tablets for hands-on participation, and our presenter will be available afterward for consultations.

Who: OSU Faculty, Staff, and students from all disciplines
When: Thursday, September 6, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Research Commons, 3rd floor of 18th Avenue Library
