The Milwaukee Demographic Analysis Workshop will teach you to extract, query, download, analyze, and map Census demographic data for Milwaukee and surrounding communities. (Note: Participants may substitute their own community in exercises-all techniques are directly transferable to other communities). Such data can provide grant writers, social researchers and community planners with powerful tools for analyzing community changes. This is a streamlined, “hands on” workshop where each participant works on their own computer throughout the day.

This workshop also provides an introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) which includes a discussion of GIS trends and common uses, where to easily obtain mapping files, a demonstration of the map browser ArcExplorer (included with your materials), hands on practice making basic maps online and suggestions for making effective maps.
