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!

\”What is GCDI\” Guide to Resources

  • Dear Digital GC,

    Check out the new Digital Fellows blog post outlining the offerings of the GC Digital Initiatives. This post reviews information about the GC Digital Initiatives, upcoming workshops, and useful online resources. The start of any semester can be a struggle as we try to get our feet back underneath us and our work done efficiently. The spring term can feel like a bit of an avalanche and it’s hard to know what else is available and where. The GC Digital Initiatives are here for you! Join the GCDI Group on the Commons for regular updates, follow us on Twitter (@Digital_Fellows@cunygcdi), tune in to your department listservs, check the workshop calendar, and visit GCDI on the Academic Commons. It’s always good to know what’s going on with the GCDI, because you, yes you, are the digital GC.

    The GCDI offers different types of support for digital scholarship from the weeklong skill introduction at the GC Digital Research Institute to evening workshops to afternoon skill share lunch conversations, to one-on-on consultation for faculty and students. Whether you have participated in our workshops before or your idea of the perfect software is a paperback edition, there is something for you! Our offerings are open to scholars at all levels of digital experience and at all stages of graduate research. Whether you are digitally driven, curious, or defiant, we are prepared to help.
