We would like to share with you our new, free OpenData GIS tool at a free half day workshop, which could help with analysing small areas of deprivation for instance over time, based on ONS data.
The PopChange resource was developed by the Centre for Spatial Demographics Research (University of Liverpool) and Clear Mapping Co. It allows you to interactively calculate and view the changes in a range of census variables from 1971 to 2011 in your local area. We are running a free half day workshop (including lunch) on using the PopChange data resource on Monday 13th February 2017 at University of Liverpool in London, 33 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1AG.
The workshop is likely to be of interest to researchers in central and local government departments, NGOs, and in academia, and any others interested in population change over small areas of Britain in the last 40 years.
The workshop will include an opportunity to use the resource, as well as workshop sessions on:
1. Past and potential case studies using the PopChange data
2. Using PopChange data in QGIS and creating a report ready map
3. Research possibilities using the PopChange data, including support for policy-makers
4. TBC: PopChange in the context of spatial open data, hosted by the Open Data Institute (ODI)
