This workshop will introduce participants to Carto, a freemium, open-source mapping platform. It will include a short review of digital mapping, background information about the platform, and a hands-on demonstration of how to create a simple map on Carto. The workshop will also briefly describe ways to develop personal data that is compatible with Carto, although the hands-on portion will be completed using a dataset available online.
The Introduction to Carto workshop is intended for new Carto users who are minimally familiar with mapping. It will also serve as a refresher for more advanced users of Carto who are unfamiliar with the platform’s new interface.
NOTES: Attendees will need a laptop to participate in the hands-on portion. They will also need to create an account at https://carto.com/ before the workshop.
