Have you heard about GIS many times, but aren’t sure what GIS is or how it is used? This first workshop of the GIS for Research series will start you down the path to use geospatial technologies in your research by guiding you through the foundational concepts of GIS and how to think spatially. We will also discuss resources available across campus and the web to help you utilize GIS for your research. GIS experience needed: None!
