Mapping Primary Source Documents: Segregation in Washington, D.C.

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Working with Prologue DC to map the patterns of restrictive covenant housing in Washington, D.C., this workshop will highlight the process by which historians and geographers utilize and map primary source documents digitally. Data from this workshop will eventually be found on the Mapping Segregation in DC website available here: http://www.mappingsegregationdc.org/#maps

We'd request that each participant bring a laptop or tablet, and we'd work alongside and assist as needed.

This workshop is part of the Visualizing Data with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) series, which offers both introductory and in-depth sessions on working with location data and geographic information systems software. Other workshops in this Spring 2019 series are Thinking Spatially with QGIS, Finding GIS Data & Resources, Styling a Map with QGIS, Spatial Analysis with QGIS, Mapping Census Data. If you're working on a GIS project and need personalized assistance, consider booking a consultation with a GIS specialist. More information is available on AcademicCommons.gwu.edu.

All sessions will be first-come, first served and are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Attendance requires no reservation.
