Steve presented at the NorthWest GIS User Conference on the topic of combining disparate datasets in Bremerton, WA on October 31, 2018.

Abstract: Do you ever struggle to find the exact GIS data that you want? Do you get frustrated that available datasets aren’t granular enough or are redacted in a way that isn’t actionable? We live in the Big Data revolution, so why should we give up if we don’t find the exact GIS data that we are looking for? In this session, we will explore the idea that to get the GIS data you want, one dataset, you may need to employ and combine multiple datasets. To demonstrate this, we have a case study on enhancing international wealth and demographic data, although this approach can apply to any GIS dataset and to any GIS industry.
