Analysis of data is actually the real power of GIS. This workshop will use existing layers of New Hampshire data and examine a variety of topics, from Social Studies to Science. ArcGIS Online Analysis tools will focus on data sets from previous elections, and data sets of habitat. Available Editable Feature Services will allow teachers to add their own student-created data to the mix. Previous experience with ArcGIS Online is a prerequisite for this workshop. Contact us for online options that will get you prepared.
