A Geographical Information System (GIS)uses spatial and aspatial data to explore where 'things' are and how they are related. This is a 'hands-on', introductory course on using MapInfo Professional - a series of short activities will allow participants to explore the functionality and potential applications of the GIS, guiding through the basics of opening and importing geographical boundaries, linking aspatial data (e.g. Census data) to those boundaries, querying and analysing data, extracting data to meet criteria, visualising data and producing maps and graphs which can be used in research outputs. MapInfo uses a menu-based interface.
Entry (no or almost no prior knowledge)
£45 for students, £90 for staff. (Cost includes lunch on the first day). This course is open to students and staff at Higher Education Institutions in the UK and Ireland.
