This week we will be visiting the Map and Data Centre at D.B. Weldon Library for a introductory workshop on using GIS (Geographic Information System) for historical research and presentation.
Have a look at Richard White’s project at Stanford: What is Spatial History?
And read the introduction and peruse the rest of Ian N. Gregory and Alistair Geddes, Toward Spatial Humanities: Historical GIS and Spatial History (Bloomington, Indiana: Indiana University Press, 2014). Library Proxy Required.
Also, have a look at a previous GIS project by a Public History student.
