Data Innovations Lecture: Space and Place in Evaluation with Katie Butler
A free lecture and discussion about the ways geography and its concepts of space and place allow us to see programs and results through different lenses with Katie Butler.

Katie Butler is the founder of the GeoLiteracy Project, an environmental scientist, geographer, and evaluator who cleverly melds disciplines and brings insight on how we can evaluate programs in new ways.

This talk is a part of the Data Innovation Project’s Data Innovations series and is made possible with funds from MEIF, Muskie School of Public Service, and Osher Map Library.

In this talk, attendees will:

• Learn how and where geographic concepts inform traditional evaluation methodologies (like logic modeling)

• Explore how geographic information helps answer evaluation questions and how to develop your own geographic information sources during an evaluation

• Learn a few easy-to-access introductory techniques for displaying and analyzing geographic information.

• Discuss a few caveats for taking care of geographic data as an evaluator
