Mapping U.S. Census Data: Bespoke Maps

Mapping U.S. Census Data: Bespoke Maps Online

This workshop will show you advanced ways to find demographic and economic data from the U.S. Census Bureau, including detailed race, ethnicity, and ancestry data, or by specific geographies. After downloading a custom data query, we will use the free and open-source software QGIS to map the data. A tutorial will be made available so you can practice working with Census data on your own after the workshop. To get the most out of this workshop, you should have a basic understanding of GIS concepts and come ready with QGIS installed on your personal computer. If you have no prior experience but would like to attend, you may want to attend the “Intro to QGIS” workshop that is also being offered this semester.
