CREATE Digital History Workshop GIS #2 Mapping Historical Data

28 March 2017, 15-17h, Media Studies eLab, UvA, Amsterdam

Mapping Historical Data is the second session of a three-part workshop on Geographic Information System (GIS); the digital toolbox for researchers working with geographic and spatial data.

The aim of this workshop is to build a basic understanding of the functionalities of the GIS analytical environment. Jitte Waagen will speak about building spatial databases while taking stock of data quality issues such as temporal and spatial uncertainties. We will practice hands-on with spatial data processing techniques, such as overlaying, combining and merging various sources of information.

Please register by sending an email to K.Beelen@uva.nl. Readings will be distributed upon registration.
