In this webinar David Wrisley, Associate Professor of Digital Humanities at NYU Abu Dhabi, will present some of the ways that making digital maps can enrich research and pedagogy in the liberal arts context.
We will look at examples of digital projects organized largely around spatial dimensions of society and culture, as well as others that use maps as one of the many ways that their subjects can be better understood. We will look at what makes strong mapping projects from a dual perspective: the data that underlies them as well as their visual clarity. Finally, we will discuss some of the basic skills for collecting and organizing spatial data as well as challenges we face as mapping projects grow. No technical expertise is required for this webinar.
