In this workshop, presenters will showcase a recently released tool at GW which is designed to help researchers more easily find and access digital resources on Chinese Studies. Participants will then use some of the real world data included in this tool to make basic maps using GIS Desktop software. No prerequisites or software is required.
Participants will be able to use ArcGIS Desktop to create basic maps; describe key concepts and vocabulary used by people who make maps and use GIS software; and navigate and use a new interactive online tool for finding and accessing digitized collections for Chinese Studies.
This workshop is part of the Mapping Your Data workshop series which offers introductory and in-depth sessions working with location data and geographic information systems (GIS) software. If you're working on a mapping project and need personalized assistance, consider booking a consultation with a GIS specialist.
