Are you developing a digital map but feel unsure about your next steps? Or, having trouble reconciling the complexity of spatial theory with the nuts-and-bolts of GIS?
Grad students interested in digital mapping are invited to participate in a workshop with Yoh Kawano, GIS Specialist at UCLA, lecturer in Urban Planning and Public Policy, and co-author of Hypercities: Thick Mapping in the Digital Humanities.
Our objective is to work through some of the challenges that arise when trying to bring complex topics to life as digital projects. During the workshop, Yoh Kawano will work with grad students to help identify and troubleshoot some of the hurdles that arise when planning and executing a map-based projecur objective is to work through some of the challenges that arise when trying to bring complex topics to life as digital projects.
