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!


  • Hi everyone!

    As part of the Mesoamerican Studies Group, I would like to invite you to “Cuerpo-Territorio: a workshop on collaborative critical cartography”. The workshop will be led by José Mora Calderón, who is a Costa Rican geographer from the University of Costa Rica with experience working with local communities in political and environmental issues. Here you can find some of his work: https://ucr.academia.<wbr />edu/JoseMora. The event will be in Spanish, so please tell us if you need interpretation in English. The workshop is limited to 20 participants, so I encourage to register 🙂

    The event will be on February 25th at 2 p.m. via Zoom.
