Free Mapping Online for the US and China

Posted: 9/8/2016 (Local Events)

This webinar will introduce “Free Mapping Online,” a new online map service distributed by the University of Michigan’s Spatial Data Center and the China Data Center as a promotion for the spatial study of the US and China. This web-based spatial system offers tens of thousands of free live maps with data from US and China, including census data, business data, land use data, and nighttime data.

This workshop will discuss the data sources, data access, and options for mapping and outputs. It will show how users can make maps online with their own data (in Excel file) by uploading the data to the server without any GIS tools and experience. It will also discuss future directions for data expansion and sharing.

This webinar is free and open to the public. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
