Date and Location

October 18, 2022
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM EST
Wex-434b Conference Room



​This is the second in a three-part series of data
visualization workshops jointly taught by the Harvard Kennedy School
Library and the Loeb Library at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
We will be hosting each workshop twice: once at HKS and once at GSD.

Instructors are James Adams (Manager of Research & Data Services,
HKS Library) and Bruce Boucek (GIS, Data, & Research Librarian,
Loeb Library at GSD).

In this hands-on workshop, we will revisit the same data used in our first session “Using R for Visualization.”
We will create a QGIS project and import and map the data. You will
learn basic cartographic techniques including scaling, labeling, and
altering symbology. The final product of this workshop will be a map
layout that can be exported to various file formats for possible
inclusion in reports and papers and other types of products.

We want to begin promptly, so please make sure to download and install both of the following prior to the workshop:

Can't make it to this workshop? We're teaching it again at GSD on October 20.
