Geoff Cunfer, Associate Professor of History at University of Saskatchewan, will give a talk on April 15, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., in Old Howe Russell 260 about Historical GIS.
Participants will learn how to map information gathered from various historical sources using a powerful open access mapping program, QGIS. The focus will be on areal units. Workshop activities might include mapping historical census data over time, georeferencing archival maps, and exploring geographical features of historical datasets.
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.
