01 - Creating a Basics Maps : This tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps to create two basic maps: a land use map, and a building height map. QGIS

02 - Census Data and Joins : This tutorial will guide you through the process of downloading census data and joining it to its corresponding shapefile. QGIS

03 - Geocoding and Joining Point Data : This tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps to bring in a csv file with address data into QGIS and geocode it, generating a point shapefile. In addition, you will learn how to join point data to polygons aggregating it at a larger geographic level. QGIS

04 - Spatial Analysis : This tutorial will provide instruction on how to create a 10-minute walking buffer from each accessible subway station, and will then reanalyze a choropleth map from a previous session, emphasizing areas of the city that are outside this buffer. The result will be a more accurate picture of areas the MTA should address through accessibility enhancements. QGIS

07 - Point Data and Joins by Location : This tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps to bring in a csv file with geographic coordinates into QGIS and generate a point shapefile. In addition, you will learn how to join point data to polygons aggregating it at a larger geographic level. QGIS

08 - Creating Annotated 3D Basemaps : This tutorial will describe the necessary steps to create an annotated map using Google Earth 3D imagery and Adobe Illustrator. QGIS Web Mapping Illustrator Google Earth Pro

09 - Introduction to Web Mapping with Election Data : This tutorial will guide you through the basic steps in creating an interactive web map displaying 2016 presidential election data.
