Take advantage of training and learn how to use MapIT to create maps and share data

If you want to use create maps or share data, be sure to sign up for one of the upcoming MapIT training sessions. MapIT Minneapolis is the City’s new online application that makes it easier to create custom, interactive maps that can be embedded in a website. MapIT can also be used to report data and create apps that display your data.
