Hi, I am Kathy, a new student of MGIS program at University of Calgary. Now, I want to do a project about retail store location and get hands-on experience. However, I do not know how to do it, I just have a rough idea. Who could help me? thanks for your help.

Do you have a GIS tool in mind? Have you identified the target demographic you are looking for? Do you have data sources in mind? These are places that I would start.
