Limited Capacity filling up

Learn how to take mappable data and analyze it in some common ways, as well as some common ways to put those maps on the Internet. How can you find out how many addresses fall in a mile of, say, local parks and schools? How can you calculate summary numbers from spatial data? What are some strategies for making an engaging map online? This session is meant to be an introduction to the concepts and give examples of how to execute those, and not to be a comprehensive how-to.

Who is this session for:
This session is for anyone who wants to learn basics of how spatial data works, and the kinds of stories you can publish once you understand these concepts.

What prior knowledge or requirements are needed to attend:
None required, though it would be helpful to understand basic mapping, programming or data concepts.
