Geographic Information Systems are software programs used to store and manage spatial data. This session will discuss the “science of where” by presenting the basics of mapping and spatial analysis. Expect an overview of software tools and data resources available at Dalhousie University.

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Be introduced to members of our GIS & Data Services team
  • Understand how to access the services we provide
  • Meet future needs using current terminology and concepts
