    Introduction to ArcMap 
    Seungwon Kim
    February 5, 5:30pm - 6:45pm
    243 Jessup Hall

    This workshop aims to provide a quick introduction to ArcMap. Participants will learn to set workspace environments for projects, generate and manipulate spatial data, combine spatial datasets with data from different sources (i.e., *.txt or *.csv), visualize and publish maps. Participants are encouraged to bring up questions on spatial aspects of their research. No prior knowledge of ArcMap is required. Datasets will be provided.
