Thursday, October 29th at 7PM, Hackforge (255 Ouellette): Join Maptime for a practical examination of open data and it’s value in evaluating public policy. Using open data, Doug Sartori will lead a demonstration of the use of QGIS to visualize public data on a map. Learn how to overlay voter turnout data on a map of Windsor and then plot public amenities on the map as well.
Great for political and data nerds!
