This workshop is an introduction to mapping tools and methods for the humanities and social sciences. First, we'll explore how humanists and social scientists use maps by evaluating different mapping projects. Then, we'll dive into an overview of different types of mapping tools, types of spatial data, and how you can find and wrangle data for your needs. This workshop is designed as an introduction for anyone who is interested in exploring mapping for their humanities and social science research, teaching, or project work. Please register if you plan to attend.
