This session introduces the concept of mapping data as a method of data visualisation. The course covers basic principles of mapping data as a visualisation tool. The primary goal of the course is to enable users to get their data onto a map with open-source online mapping tools to create, geocode and display geographic data.

  • Create, geocode and display data in a geographic environment

  • Explain in which context map visualisations are appropriate

  • Access & apply the required data formats for the relevant mapping applications

  • Utilise open-source online mapping applications to map geographic data

  • Explore different map visualisation techniques and to understand which technique applies to which data format

  • Identify the power of map visualisation as an element of storytelling

  • Identify the unique ability of data mapping to highlight trends in data

Note: Data Labs have 38 seats with computers. These workshops may reach capacity quickly, so we recommend you arrive early.
