Workshop: Mapping History, Harvard University
October 30, 2019 - October 31, 2019
October 30-31, 10am-2pm
Mapping is an effective tool for reconstructing the past, which reveals the spatial relationships that stimulated cultural, social and political change over time. In this workshop, we will introduce digital tools and workflows for visualizing and interpreting historical data. We will cover the basics of QGIS, web mapping with Leaflet, georeferencing historical maps, incorporating time-based geographic data, creating multilayer historical web maps, and more. Mapping History will be led by Nil Tuzcu (Harvard Kennedy School and MIT), a designer and creative technologist, with assistance from the DSSG.
