Mapping Boot Camp
IRE and NICAR conducts this hands-on training using the latest version of ArcView GIS. We will look at noteworthy stories that have used mapping and show you how to uncover stories using census and other data.
The sessions will include address geocoding, thematic mapping, overlaying and spatial analysis. Participants should have basic knowledge in using relational database programs such as Microsoft Access. NICAR is a joint program of IRE and the Missouri School of Journalism.Attendees of the bootcamp have the option to receive the following discounts from Esri.
