This workshop is suitable for students and faculty from many disciplines, including business, criminal justice, education, gender studies, history, sociology, etc.
This hands-on workshop will begin with an overview of the data sets in Social Explorer, followed by step-by-step instructions for completing the following tasks:
- Create maps using specific variables (e.g., race)
- Change visualization types
- Create and compare side-by-side maps
- Save and share your map
- Use the “Tell a Story” tool to provide context for your maps.
