This is the last 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.

In this hands-on workshop 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 inclusion in print and digital reports and papers.

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

Accessibility: The HKS
Library encourages individuals with disabilities to participate in our
events. The workshop location is wheelchair/scooter accessible, and
accessible restrooms are available. If we can make learning easier for
you (e.g. sign-language interpreters, lactation facilities), please
email and we will attempt to provide them.
