Computational Humanities Series: GIS and Mapping
March 2 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Presented by Stephen Appel, UWM Libraries.
Maps are a familiar tool of humanities research. Maps of places and spaces can provide useful context, help connect information based on location, and visualize patterns through time and space. Geographic Information Systems provide the humanities with digital tools to take advantage of cartographic methods and visualization, tell stories with maps, and do spatial analysis on just about any data. Learn about some ways that GIS is being employed in humanities research, including with accessible tools like story maps, desktop GIS, and online GIS.
