Preparing a two day GIS workshop for Arts and Humanities researchers
In winter 2018, we were approached to lead a two day (12 hour) workshop for arts and humanities researchers as part of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East (DHSITE) conference hosted by the University of Ottawa. The workshop, Introduction to Mapping and Spatial Methods for the Humanities, built upon a shorter offering presented by Sarah last year. It had a Historical GIS (HGIS) twist and was open in terms of datasets, software, and instructional materials.
