This guide outlines how to create a grid map of enterprises and employment data in the Helsinki region, using a subset of the 2017 Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority (HSY) data and the QGIS software. Grid maps, a subtype of the areal unit map, are used to visualize predefined geometric geographic areas in map form and enable the reader to easily scrutinize the geographic distribution of a value over a given region. The grid map uses color or pattern to encode values across geographic regions. You will learn to identify ideal use cases and best practices for employing the grid map in your work. The dataset file is accompanied by a Student Guide and a How-to Guide for QGIS.
