Azavea’s Lunch & Learn about maps

Posted by on July 15, 2013

Your database contains more than just names and addresses. Maps and data visualizations can unearth compelling stories.

As you know, maps show funders and constituents areas of need while demonstrating where their support has already made a difference. They reveal community trends and issues that in turn you can address more strategically. Undoubtedly geography and location-based services are changing the way we interpret our world and engage with communities around us.

Azavea has crafted a series of Lunch and Learns to meet your level of technical expertise. No matter how much or little knowledge you have about mapping, you will learn how to harness the power of geography to meet your organization’s needs through any of the following meetings:
