Not 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 introduce different types of GIS software to discover geospatial data and learn about key concepts like vector vs. raster data, scale, and projections. We will also discuss resources available across campus and the web to help you utilize GIS for your research. No prior GIS experience is necessary. 

Developing better research skills is just a tweet away. Learn to find sources, manage information, and share your research with the world: https://twitter.com/IllinoisLibrary
