  • Rilquer Mascarenhas (he/him/his) changed the description of the group Group logo of GIS / Mapping Working GroupGIS / Mapping Working Group from "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 new 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.

    Members of the group are encouraged to share their projects, ideas, and questions concerning the use of GIS or other mapping technologies through this group. We will also hold regular meetings to share our projects in person and to support each other to make the most out of the use of GIS technologies in our research projects.

    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." to "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.

    Fall 2022 Semester:
    During this semester, our group will meet every other week on Thursdays from 4 to 5pm. We plan on having a list of topics throughout the semester to discuss concepts on maps and mapping tools, each meeting building on the previous one. Our tentative schedule of topics for each meeting is shown below, but feel free to bring your own interests to the table each day:

    Oct 6th – Introductions and discussions on the scientific and social use of maps
    Oct 20th – What do we need for mapping? Preparing your data
    Nov 3rd – Discussion on softwares
    Nov 17th – Hands-on with QGIS I
    Dec 1st – Hands-on with QGIS II
    Dec 15th – Okay, you made a map. What next?
