Data Visualization Classes and Workshops

We offer online and in-person classes for the community, as well as private, customized workshops in data visualization and web mapping. To schedule a custom workshop get in touch.

Our data visualization and cartography community classes are small, intimate, hands-on sessions that focus on data visualization as a creative practice – they are not overly formal and impersonal lectures in a big theater. Bring your data and your ideas for custom-tailored delivery and selected content emphasis based on your individual needs. These classes are offered online or in-person at our Mission District studio in San Francisco.

To be notified of upcoming classes, join our mailing list. You can view example course descriptions of the two classes we offer below.

In this two day workshop you'll learn how to present information effectively using interactive data visualizations. You'll gain critical data visualization literacy, and gain experience building your own visualizations.

This two day workshop focuses on geospatial data as part of a data visualization interface. You will build a solid foundation in web map design principles, and you'll gain hands-on experience working with spatial data in JavaScript.

Previous Classes and Workshops

Maptime is a worldwide gathering of mapmakers who regularly meet to learn how to make maps together. Started in 2013 at Stamen HQ in San Francisco and with seed funding from Stamen, the concept spread quickly and now boasts 60 US chapters and over 80 chapters worldwide

Maps From Scratch was a 2009 E-Tech Tutorial and Where 2.0 Tutorial by Stamen's Michal Migurski and Shawn Allen. We've collected some of our notes and relevant links here where they might be useful to people who didn't attend the tutorial but would like a bit of hand-holding in generating your own maps from geo data.
