Today the Digital Humanities Summer Workshop Series wrapped up with the third and final session, focused on useful features in ARCGIS, a premier Geographic Information System.  Faculty from various programs and departments, as well as staff from ITS and Institutional Research attended this workshop.

ARCGIS is a powerful toolset for analyzing data through maps, and Professor Erin Warford guided participants as they discovered new spatial analysis techniques.  Participants learned how to incorporate data from scans or photographs of paper maps into digital maps.  Now, scholars can discover new insights by comparing information garnered from several maps or databases, and produce their own multi-layered maps for publication.  Thanks again to Dr. Warford, Adjunct Professor of Classics, for sharing her GIS skills with colleagues at Canisius College!

The Digital Humanities Summer Workshop Series was made possible by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Digital Humanities Group, and the Center for Online Learning & Innovation.
