Getting Started Putting Your Data on the Map

Do you collect post code data from your beneficiaries / clients?

Are you interested in analysing this geographical data against other internal or external data to spot trends, illustrate your reach or evidence gaps?

Robust, data informed decisions can help with your service planning and show what's already working to funders, commissioners and your key stakeholders.

It can also help you make the case for change and evidence need in your funding applications.

This training will introduce free, low cost and easy to use tools to get started putting your data on a map. After demoing a selection of tools you can use, you can practice mapping using case study data we provide using a free option.

You'll also find out about more advanced mapping tools, should you need to map more complex data in future.


What you will learn

You will discover how to:

  • Identify use cases for your organisation
  • Create a simple map using case study postcode data
  • Choose from a range of free and affordable mapping tools available to you

We offer follow up support when you start creating maps with your own organisational data.
