Introduction to Mapping and GIS: Translating Humanities Data



Nov 12 4:30 – 5:30 pm

The South Asia Digital Humanities Working Group invites you to for a conversation about GIS mapping and its applications for historical or other humanities-centered research. Meher Ali (PhD student, History), and Wangyal Shawa (GIS and Map Librarian, PUL) will lead an informal discussion around the uses and methods of GIS technology, and the possibilities (and challenges) of translating traditional archival or textual source material into GIS-friendly data.

This is the second event in the South Asia DH series ‘From Analog to Digital’. Please stay tuned for our programming throughout the academic year.
