Participants will become familiar with the OpenStreetMap project, as we discuss the project’s principles and the links between the basic map components (node, line, area). We will provide hands-on instruction on how to add, edit, filter and export data within OSM.
Participants will learn the foundations of the CARTO platform. Based on the data exported from OpenStreetMap, we will create an interactive map suitable for sharing on-line or embedding on a website.
Participants will learn the basics of GIS software and perform simple analyses based on Katowice-related databases.
