  • Effective practices for using GIS Software.
  • Use readymade templates.
  • Effectively communicate the assets of your community.


Planners always have a story to tell. Maps have always been a way to tell these stories but often benefit from additional content, such as videos, images, and text. In this hands-on workshop, with no programming and no GIS knowledge, you’ll use ready-made templates to tell a story about the assets of your community on the web to convey the message that you want and to foster additional discussion. Laptops and other equipment required for session will be provided.
