In this hands-on session participants will 1) propose a compelling spatial question; 2) source geographic data from print and online sources; 3) enter data into Google Sheets; and 4) create a set of choropleth and/or symbol-based maps that display data variability spatially. Group discussion will be held to explain patterns discovered and suggest cartographically-correct methods of data representation. South Carolina teachers of Grades 7 and 9 social studies will find this session particularly useful. Participants should bring a laptop and have access to Google Sheets.
