Geospatial Data: How to Find It, Assess It, and Consider Societal Issues Around It

Geospatial Data: How to Find It, Assess It, and Consider Societal Issues Around It In-Person / Online

Data is the fuel for GIS. But in today's data saturated world, how can one efficiently find data? Equally importantly, once data has been found, how can one determine if it is any good? Will it meet your needs? Data are increasingly tied to societal considerations, such as ethics, copyright, location privacy, and more. How can you navigate these societal issues? Join Brian Baldwin (Senior Solution Engineer for Education at Esri) to learn all about finding and assessing geospatial data with Esri’s suite of GIS apps and tools.
