Power of Combining Maps with Data


Accessing & Using Geographic-Demographic-Economic Data
    GeoSpatial Analytics


Join us in the weekly web sessions where we review wide-ranging topics on
  • current and trending geographic-demographic-economic characteristics
  • tools to access & use demographic-economic data with other data
  • using decision-making information & developing insights

One-hour Data web sessions are conducted by Warren Glimpse.
  • Tuesdays 3:00 pm ET; Accessing & Using Demographic-Economic Data
  • Thursdays 3:00 pm ET; GeoSpatial Analytics
      Visual Data Analytics (VDA) Training & Support
  • gain insights into information change, patterns that might affect you
  • see connectivity details below

Who benefits? Anyone who is directly or indirectly engaged in accessing/using geographic, demographic, economic data for management, analysis or decision-making. While we cover many technical details, managers and leaders benefit from understanding what is possible even though perhaps not engaged in daily data development or analytics. Topics are heavily cross-related. The thread of small area demographics runs throughout the sessions, even though the main topic might be on congressional districts or cities/counties. The sessions provide a forum for problem-solving and continuity not found elsewhere.

E-mail us or call (888-364-7656) with questions/help.
