Education & Training

We developed two GIS training courses for labor professionals in the United States.

  1. An introduction to GIS and the ArcGIS application provided a foundation of geographic concepts and a working knowledge of ArcGIS.
  2. We constructed applications of GIS technology for labor market professionals around a series of case studies that explored labor-related purposes such as the use of GIS to assist dislocated workers and to examine labor force patterns.

We also included a review of how to apply GIS to a variety of modeling and mapping purposes, such as site location analysis, population pattern modeling, and effective map presentation techniques.
