Upcoming Mapping Tools WICshop

Want to look at how city demographics have changed over decades? Interested in putting data about health, housing, or quality of life indicators on a map? Want to make a neighborhood or regional policy or marketing proposal based on conditions or needs? The Penn Libraries subscribes to Social Explorer, PolicyMap, and SimplyMap, online mapping tools that allow you to easily find and map Census, policy, and business data for the United States. Come to the Simple Mapping Tools WICshop on June 2nd in the Collaborative Classroom to get a hands-on introduction to all three tools and see how they can support your research. You can find more information about the years and topics included, data export formats available, and more at the Online Mapping Tools guide, and register for the WICshop here.
