With the increasing size of datasets and declining cost of storage, data warehouses like Amazon Redshift are becoming more prevalent for storing and analyzing geospatial data. 

Unlock the potential of Amazon Redshift and CARTO for geospatial data analysis in this interactive virtual workshop led by industry experts. Participants will learn how to utilize built-in spatial functions, perform spatial joins and apply machine learning models on large datasets using Amazon Redshift.
Attendees will also learn how to find and subscribe to third-party data on AWS Data Exchange and seamlessly query them alongside first-party data in Amazon Redshift. Attendees will receive AWS credits to offset the costs of running their analysis upon completion of the workshop.
