Using GIS Tools & GeoDemographics
  .. self-paced, online course
  .. by Warren Glimpse, founder of ProximityOne
    - developer of GBF/DIME & prototype for Census Bureau digital map database

The impact of the pandemic has made business, demographic and economic data more important than ever. While in a sense "data are king," tools are needed to make effective use of the data -- develop insights. If you are managing part or all of a business, you need to know how your organization can best benefit from data (knowing which data) and analytical tools. Technically geared professionals, developers, need the experience and knowledge to stand out among others to be more attractive to HR and/or in their current organization. Either way, knowing about GIS - Geographic Information Systems -- and how to use these tools with key data create opportunities for you and your organization is essential. Further empower yourself and your organization by participating in the Using GIS and GeoDemographics course.

Visual representation, maps, of demographic data by geographic area can be exciting and rewarding. Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can bring maps alive. Creativity is boundless. The banner at the top presents a static view of a map rendered using GIS. This map shows the Los Angeles area by census tract. For the analyst or stakeholder, it shows something more -- the percent Asian citizen voting age population by tract, overlayed with Congressional District boundaries and codes. It shows relationships, patterns. Using the power of GIS, the zoom level, colors, legend, and labeling can all be changed immediately. You, the GIS user, are at once analyst, artist and storyteller. In control of your medium, canvas, you further your benefits from use these software and data by making dynamic presentations in collaborations. Make compelling arguments. Capture your views and blend them with words and charts into documents. Welcome to the world of GIS and geodemographics.
