Our introductory course offers an introduction to the fundamentals of GIS and geospatial data, using the free software QGIS. In this workshop, you will learn to make a basic choropleth map of Massachusetts using municipal boundaries.
Mapmaking 101 is taught for those with no prior experience in digital mapping, though patrons should have familiarity with downloading files from the web.
This workshop is located in the instructional computer lab on the mezzanine level of the Johnson Building at the Central Library in Copley Square.
Registration is not required, but spots are limited. Seating will occur on a first-come-first-serve basis.
