In this workshop you will acquire a basic GIS skill-set by creating a map of Baltimore visualize the Index of Dissimilarity. This workshop uses QGIS. QGIS is the most popular open-source GIS software, and is interoperable with a wide range of data and GIS resources.
QGIS does not have a dedicated technical support team, but does have a large user-community that provides extensive instruction and support. QGIS is a very good option for non-profits or others on a budget.
This workshop is being offered in collaboration between Peace Tech Lab and Morgan State University, Baltimore, MD.
