Our GIS Day celebration this year will provide a hands-on workshop featuring mapping in the humanities for non-ArcGIS users. In this workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to explore a mapping platform that contains and compares historical maps of Boston in the past century, produce demographic maps from their own data, and learn how to perform map overlay with maps from different years and subjects. The event is open to the public; anyone with an interest in GIS is welcome to attend, and registration is required. The event will be held in the Digital Studio (O’Neill Library Room 205) on November 13, 2019 from 11 am – 1 pm.
