This Week’s Workshops - Jan. 30th-Feb. 3rd
Geocoding is a geoprocessing technique that allows you to derive latitude and longitude coordinates from an address database. As a result, the original table of addresses can be mapped, enabling the power of geospatial analysis. This workshop will provide an overview of geocoding and the most important considerations in conducting your geocoding project. We will review several desktop and web-based geocoding options, such as ArcGIS, QGIS and Python. After the workshop, researchers will have a good understanding of how to conduct geocoding with sensitive data and how to assess the accuracy of geocoded results.
