Social Explorer: Making Maps Fun and Easy

Workshop: Social Explorer: Making Maps Fun and Easy Tuesday, September 30th, 12:30pm – 1:00pm IC Room 120 Maps are one of the easiest ways of visualizing data. They liven up presentations, improve projects and make complicated data easier to understand. Social Explorer is one of several tools available that make map making easy. This workshop will demonstrate not only how to make a map out of the available data, but also how to make a map easier to interpret using color selection, transparency, and sensible selection of geographic details. We will also cover exporting maps for use in documents and presentations. Questions may be sent to Ben Aldred at baldred@luc.edu.
