Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) Spring 2012 Speaker Series

Digital Maps in Scholarship and Publishing - February 21, 2012

Diana S. Sinton

Dr. Diana S. Sinton Lecture: Noon - 2 p.m. - KRJH 127 (Red Pit)
Workshop: 4:10 - 6 p.m. - KRJH 250

Geographic information has long been central to disciplines ranging from anthropology to zoology, and many scholars are beginning to use digital tools such as geographic information systems (GIS) and other geospatial technologies to ask and answer a range of spatial questions.  This talk will highlight issues of data preservation, peer review, data copyright, and community access, among others.  I will share examples from numerous institutions of higher education and discuss maps that have been published online, in print, and at conferences.
