      What's in a Map? A Crash-Course in GIS for the Humanities and Fine Arts

      Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a catch-all term for the software that helps us create stellar maps and explore spatial patterns in our data. If you have ever used Google Maps to scope out your neighborhood or checked out interactive maps on the web, you already have experience using an Online GIS. But the software can be used for a lot more than just displaying information. Whether you are directly engaged in digital humanities research or just interested in where your favorite [insert thing you study here] comes from, GIS is an essential tool for analyzing geospatial data and identifying patterns over space and time. This two-hour workshop is meant for both students and faculty. It will provide an overview of GIS and introduce its potential applications in fields across the Humanities and Fine Arts.

      Cost: Free admission
