Mar. 15: Historical GIS Workshop

Posted in Announcements, Events

sluyterAndrew Sluyter, Associate Professor of Geography at LSU, will give a talk on March 15, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., in New Howe-Rusell 220 about Historical GIS

Participants will learn how to map information gathered from various historical sources using a powerful open access mapping program, QGIS.  This workshop will focus on mapping point data. Participants in this workshop might learn how to create a route map from such sources as ship log books or travel accounts, how to create a surface or heat map, or map census data over time.

The talk is part of a series hosted by the Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL) about digital humanities, an interdisciplinary field that merges traditional humanities research and teaching with new media, technologies, and computational methods. The workshops are open to students and faculty, and will be particularly of interest to graduate students.

Note: Attendance at the previous Historical GIS workshop is not required. The two workshops complement each other, but are not sequential.
