The Indianapolis Demographic Analysis Workshop will teach
you to extract, query, download, analyze, and map Census demographic data
for Indianapolis and surrounding communities. (Note:
Participants may substitute their own community
in exercises-all techniques are directly transferable to other
communities). Such data can provide grant writers, social researchers
and community planners with powerful tools for analyzing community changes. This
is a streamlined, “hands on” workshop where each participant works on their own
computer throughout the day.
This workshop also provides an introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) which includes a discussion of GIS trends and common uses, where to easily obtain mapping files, a demonstration of the map browser ArcExplorer (included with your materials), hands on practice making basic maps online and suggestions for making effective maps. See a detailed description

This CD includes useful GIS tools such as ArcExplorer and several shapefiles for all communities in the United States. Materials also include a 60 day trial version of ArcView 9.0, a leading GIS software. Also included is the 2003 US Statistical Abstract which includes an extensive selection of statistics for the United States, with selected data for states, metropolitan areas and cities.
