Fundamentals in Digital Scholarship: GIS for Humanities Workshop

GIS and Spatial Data for Humanities: Introduction to ESRI’s Story Maps

Date: 11 February 2017, 1pm – 4pm

Location: Harriet Irving Library Data/GIS Lab (HIL 310)

Have you ever wanted to map the spaces and places in a literary or historical work or body of work?  If so, this workshop is for you. UNB Libraries Data/GIS Librarian, Siobhan Hanratty, will introduce you to some basic concepts that will help you on your way.  During this workshop you will use ESRI’s story maps <http://storymaps.arcgis.com/en/> templates to situate your data and add text, images, and multi-media content as applicable. Time permitting, we shall also explore sources of data and more robust tools for thematic mapping.
