    The Online Training Workshop for Spatial Data Analysis


    Introduction to China Geo-Explorer


    China Data Center at the University of Michigan


     10-11:00 am (EST), October 2, 2015




    Within the last ten years, the UM China Data Center has made lots of efforts in the development and distribution of government statistics, Census data, and GIS data of China. Those information provide a rich source for the study of population, economy, social environment and their relative changes in China. It has been a challenge how to efficiently integrate those space-time data, provide methodology for different research targets, and promote their applications in different fields. The workshop will introduce the China Geo-Explorer distributed by the University of Michigan China Data Center. It will demonstrate how space-time data of different formats and sources can be integrated, visualized, analyzed and reported in a web based system. The workshop is free and open for public. Pre-registration is required. The online registration will be closed once all seats are full.

    The online registration has been closed due to limited seats. Please contact chinadata@umich.edu if you would like to join the training workshop in the future.
