Recommended for each participant:

  • Your laptop.  We'll be in a computer lab, so this is not essential as students can use the lab machines.  But installing and using the GIS software on your own laptop is a good accelerant to using and learning GIS. 
  • If you have a laptop:  Download and install  GoogleEarthPro, and QGIS,  (both free)
  • Create a login on the Worldmap site (http://worldmap.harvard.edu)
  • Bring any data or documents you want to map or work with.  Time permitting, the instructors will look at your data and offer suggestions.
