Summer Researcher Reception

Working on an academic project on campus this summer? Student researchers are invited to enjoy some refreshments, talk informally about your projects, and learn about available resources. Rain location: Frost Library Friendly Periodicals Reading Room

Mapping Geographic Data with ArcGIS

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a set of powerful tools to discover spatial relationships and illuminate your research with intuitive maps:

• Illustrate historic sites and extract features from old maps
• Spatially correlate census, economic, and other data
• Display geologic formations and delineate watersheds
• Track human, animal, and plant populations
• Map locations from a GPS receiver

You will learn about:

• Constructing and Sharing Maps (including with Google Earth)
• Mapping Named Data (including census data and street addresses)
• Mapping Coordinate Data (including using a GPS receiver)
• Mapping Image Data (including scanned maps and satellite data)
• Extracting Map Features

This workshop is in three parts:

• Tuesday through Thursday, June 5 – 7, 6-9 p.m.; light dinner provided at 5:30 p.m.
(additional meetings may be arranged if there is interest).
