Population Data BC - Data Visualization and ArcGIS (4-part webinar series)
This four-part webinar course examines the basics of handling, manipulating and visualizing data in a spatial context using geographic information systems (GIS). The course will provide a broad overview of common spatial problems related to health and provide you with the tools to identify these issues and how to handle them in a GIS environment. Focus will be on designing effective visualizations, integrating non-spatial data into a GIS and manipulating spatial data in Esri’s ArcGIS software package. During the course you will be provided with data sets and applied exercises to practice and follow along. Students will learn how to use GIS to explore spatial questions, become familiar with ArcGIS’s program interface, and create effective map visualizations from health data.
No prior knowledge of data visualization or data visualization software is expected. Familiarity with administrative healthcare data and basic statistical and data analysis procedures is assumed. Prior experience with ArcGIS is helpful but not essential.
This webinar takes place over four sessions:
Session 1 - Tuesday January 23rd | Session 2 - Thursday January 25th
