2014 Mar 21: Introduction to HGIS

Our much-anticipated March 2014 DH Toolbox session:

March 21 Friday
3:00-5:00 pm
Arts 140

Geoff Cunfer presents a Hands-On Introduction to Historical GIS

Geoff Cunfer is an environmental historian of agriculture on the North American Great Plains. He runs the HGIS Lab at the U of S. This session will provide an example of Historical GIS drawn from his own research about prairie land use change during the 20th century. We’ll start with a brief demonstration, and then participants will work through an analysis of aerial photos taken over the past 80 years. No previous GIS experience is necessary. All are welcome.
