Workshop ‘Digital mapping for historians with QGIS’
A map can be an excellent way to visualize your research, but only a small percentage of people know how to make them. Have you been wanting to learn more about digital mapping for your research, but do not know where to start? Or struggle to make time to teach yourself? This workshop may be for you!
In this workshop, which is made possible by the N.W. Posthumus Institute, the HiDo Scientific Network for Historical Demography, and the Quetelet Center, attendees will be taught the essentials of digital mapping using the world’s most popular open source application QGIS. By the end of this two half-day hands-on workshop, you will be able to combine different types of data to create your own historical maps for use in papers, presentations and other sessions.
Attendance is free of charge. We can host a maximum of 15 participants for this hands-on workshop, so signing up is necessary. Preference will be given to Posthumus-students and fellows, a wait list will be used in case interest exceeds the number of spaces available. Applicants should provide a brief motivation (a few sentences in English or Dutch) on how the workshop might be useful or interesting for your research.
