    Hi all,

    This semester I will be holding office hours biweekly starting this Wednesday the 4th from 10:30am-11:30am in room 7414. The full schedule of office hours for all of the digital fellows can be found on our website.

    I’ll also be giving a workshop on March 25th from 630pm-830pm called How Not to Lie With Maps. The workshop will go over some of the ethical issues of mapmaking and we will draw on methods from feminist GIS and critical cartography to try to limit the ways that we lie with maps. Hope to see you there!

    Hello all!

    Like Olivia, I will also be having office hours to help anyone with their
    GIS projects, issues or questions (other non-GIS digital tool questions
    also welcome), every other Tuesday, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM (next one will be on
    the 17).

    And, this semester I will also offer a GIS-related workshop, thinking of a
    more advanced audience (could it be *you*?). The workshop is called “How to
    change the spatial boundaries of your data using QGIS
    and will (hopefully) guide participants through implementing a Maantay,
    Maroko and Herrmann-inspired Cadastral-Based Expert Dasymetric System
    (CEDS) to estimate Census and/or American Community Survey Data in custom
    spatial boundaries. It will be on Wednesday March 18, at 6:30 PM. If you’re
    interested, sign up following the link above.

    Additionally, we are intending to have a GIS Working Group Meeting this
    Semester. Date and time still TBD.

    So, to recap, here’s what we’re offering you this Semester:

    *Office hours:*
    Every other Tuesday 12:30 – 1:30 PM (starting on 02/17) with Javier, or
    every other Wednesday 10:30 – 11:30 AM (starting on 02/05) with Olivia
    (When in doubt, check the GCDI Calendar
    “How to change the spatial boundaries of your data using QGIS
    on March 18, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
    “How Not to Lie with Maps
    (”, on
    March 25, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
    *GIS Working Group Meeting:*
    Date and time TBD.

    If any of you is also offering GIS-related resources, workshops or support
    this Semester, feel free to share them as a follow-up to this e-mail.
