Introduction to ArcGIS : visualising environmental data using ArcGIS (Part 2 of 2)
In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to create a map with ArcGIS using data downloaded from organisations such as the National Parks & Wildlife Service and the EPA.
Step-by-step guidance will be given on importing the data into the ArcGIS software package and using background maps from Ordnance Survey Ireland's MapGenie service.
This course is designed for those with little or no GIS experience and who don’t necessarily have access to a UCD course with a GIS module. It is intended to introduce participants to the basics of GIS and how people use it to visualise and interpret geospatial data.
Part of the series: Digital Tools and Approaches to Connect and Transform Your Research
