If you are new to GIS, this is the workshop for you. This five-hour workshop introduces participants to web-based mapping and spatial analysis using Esri’s ArcGIS Online. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on activities, participants will learn the fundamentals of designing and sharing online maps. Topics covered include preparing data for use, online data sources, map design, and spatial analysis.

Leveraging Data and Narrative To Advance Equity Locally

As America grows more diverse yet racial inequities in health, wealth, and opportunity remain wide and persistent, community action to advance equity – just and fair inclusion – is more critical than ever. Robust data that is disaggregated by race/ethnicity, income, neighborhood, and more plays a key role in supporting community groups, advocates, planners, policymakers, and others understand the state of equity in communities and inform policy solutions.
This workshop, designed for anyone interested in producing and using local data tools to advance equity, will introduce equity as a concept, discuss effective data-driven narratives to frame equity, share examples of local and national data tools designed to advance equity, and present a set of principles for designing data tools for health equity action developed by PolicyLink and EcoTrust.

Story Maps 101: Visual Storytelling with Maps

This two-hour workshop guides participants through the process of telling stories with maps using the Esri Story Map platform. A discussion about best practices in visual storytelling will precede a step-by-step tutorial on creating your own Esri Story Map.
