    Using Mapping Technology for Instruction and Research

    Saturday, April 18, 2020

    8:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.

    Location: Conference Hotel

    This workshop will investigate two simple and powerful web-based mapping technologies suitable for instruction and research. StoryMapJS supports descriptive maps that incorporate texts, images, and videos. Each StoryMap arranges a series of locations on a map that, taken together, construct a narrative that others can follow online. Google My Maps allows the construction of personalized maps incorporating points, lines, and polygons, as well as links, images, and videos. This powerful web mapping software is quick to learn and supports many features typically found in sophisticated Geographic Information Systems software.

    Tim Clarke (Muhlenberg College) is a librarian and instructional designer who builds things on the web (including maps) with educators, researchers, and students.

    Additional information will be sent to workshop registrants prior to the conference.

    Mapping Complex and Dissimilar Information

    Sunday, April 19, 2020

    8:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.

    Location: Conference Hotel

    This workshop will introduce participants to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software that allows the combination of all types of spatial data. Spatial data can be anything with a known location such as census records, historic maps, anything with an address, place names in texts and more. Participants will learn how to bring raster data (such as a scanned map) and vector data (such as the outline of a town, location of a house, or the course of a river) into QGIS. Though free and open source, QGIS is one of the most powerful software packages for mapping. This introductory workshop will help the participant understand what can be done with GIS and begin to exercise basic skills. The workshop is designed for beginners, but those wishing to brush up their GIS skills or try out QGIS are welcome.

    Ben Carter is an archaeologist at Muhlenberg College who uses GIS with his students to better understand the historic landscape of the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. He also works in South America.

    Additional information will be sent to workshop registrants prior to the conference.
