Mapping Census Data with Social Explorer

Mapping Census Data with Social Explorer Online

Social Explorer is an online mapping tool that can be used to visualize data from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau (1790-present), the Religious Congregations and Membership Survey, World Development Indicators, and many more.

In this workshop, we'll use Social Explorer to visualize U.S. census data in an interactive online map. Participants will learn how to create and stylize a map based on a variable of interest, share a map, and use Social Explorer's built-in tools to compare maps, visualize changes over time, etc. No prior GIS or mapping experience is required for this workshop.

This specific workshop will not be recorded. A link to a recording of a past workshop is available and will be sent to attendees following the workshop.

Process

Attendees should sign into Social Explorer using their Brandeis credentials. Once you've signed into the site, you will need to set up a personal account to save your maps, etc.
