Description

Much information has a geographic element but may not be ready to plot on a map—for example, street addresses or ZIP codes. Geocoding is the process of transforming a street address from text into points on a map. This webinar explains the process of geocoding and introduces some tools for transforming a table of street addresses to latitude and longitude pairs on a map, without using proprietary GIS software. Presenter Christine Murray, is the Social Science Data Services Librarian, and serves as liaison to the urban studies and criminology departments, at the University of Pennsylvania Van Pelt Library. She received her MSI from the University of Michigan.
