Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used for visualizing, managing, creating, and analyzing geographic data. Such applications are widely used in academia, private industry and government agencies. Available GIS technologies are used to perform various tasks, from simple to advanced, including:  mapping, geographic analysis, geostatistics, data editing, compilation, management and visualization.

This session will introduce users to: 1) GIS data and technical support at Boston College; 2) Examples and demos using Census and Environmental data; 3). Options to get data and training will be also discussed. No prior knowledge of GIS is required.
