This introductory workshop is geared towards social scientists and digital humanitists who have data - spreadsheets, scanned maps, digital photos, etc - that they want to display on a map. We explore these tasks in CARTO, a versatile web mapping and geospatial analysis tool. CARTO is currently used by major news organizations, research institutions, non-profits and geospatial application developers. The workshop will provide an introduction to managing, creating and analyzing geographic data and creating interactive map visualizations for the web, using the CARTO platform.
No prior experience is assumed or required. To follow along, bring your laptop and use this URL (https://carto.com/signup?plan=academy) to sign-up for a CARTO academic account before the workshop. It may also be useful to check out the tutorials on the CARTO Map Academy (https://carto.com/academy/).
Registration will be available through the D-Lab website (to be announced soon).
Co-hosted by the Library and D-Lab.
