Whether you need to just make a quick map or extract geo-located demographic data for use in other software, online tools can be just the thing! This workshop will introduce a few different web platforms for exploring and mapping U.S. demographic data, including the UCB Library-subscribed databases SimplyAnalytics and PolicyMap. While there is some overlap between the different applications, each has its own strengths and unique features. There will be hands-on exercises to explore the data and visualization tools that the different platforms offer.

No prior knowledge required. Please bring a laptop with you for the hands-on exercises.
