Description

Part of The Digital Scholarship Series

Advances in technology have improved our ability to create digital maps more easily over time. This session provides an introduction to the principles of GIS and the programs of Tableau and Story Maps, so that researchers new to the use of mapping technology can better appreciate what goes into the making of an effective map and how maps can be used as powerful storytelling tools.

Objectives

  • Experiment telling a story in a different way.
  • Discover new tools for analyzing, visualizing, and sharing data.
  • Evaluate the limits of said tools.
