GIS / Mapping Working Group

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) / Mapping working group is a network of CUNY students, faculty and staff who are interested in sharing methods and techniques, and finding support from others about ways GIS can be used to further research and teaching.

The GIS/Mapping working group is part of a GC Digital Initiatives program designed to create collaborative communities of Digital Fellows, CUNY-wide graduate students, staff, and faculty to meet regularly and share their areas of interest. The working groups provide a sustained, supportive environment to learn new skills, share familiar skills, and collaborate with both the Digital Fellows and the CUNY digital community.

If you are using Geographic Information Systems or other mapping technologies in your teaching and/or research, or if you are interested in mapping your data, or using GIS technology to analyze/visualize your data, we invite you to join the GIS/Mapping working group.

Peruse our mapping resource bank here:

For the Spring 2024 semester, the GIS/Mapping working group will meet in the Digital Scholarship Lab, Room 7414, every other Tuesday from 2-4 p.m. Check out our event calendar for the specific meeting dates. Please stop by!

Wed 5/1: GIS talk by Harvey Miller on Urban Mobility @ 3:30 pm

  • Using GIS to make urban mobility more sustainable
    Wednesday, May 1, 2019
    3:30 PM ~ Hunter College ~ 1022 HN

    Harvey J. Miller, PhD
    Reusche Chair in Geographic Information Science
    Professor, Department of Geography
    Director, Center for Urban and Regional Analysis (CURA)
    The Ohio State University

    Contemporary humanity enjoys mobility levels that are unprecedented in
    history. While this has benefits, it also has enormous social, health and
    environmental costs. Resolving these costs is crucial if civilization is to
    survive the 21st century – a world that will see 10 billion people, most of
    whom will crowd into cities. Stunning advances in location-aware
    technologies such as the GPS and cell phones, wireless sensors, spatial
    simulation methods and geographic information systems (GIS) are creating new
    opportunities to help move the world towards more sustainable mobility.
    This lecture will describe the concept of sustainable transportation and how
    new, data-driven science allows scholars and practitioners to address these
    essential issues.

    All are invited to attend!
