Historical GIS Workshop

Are you interested in combining history with mapping? This Historical GIS workshop will be a great introduction. Historical GIS is the practice of analyzing geospatial data created from historical documents and maps. This workshop, led by Phil White, Ilene Raynes, and Naomi Heiser from the Earth Sciences & Map Library, will introduce participants to basic Historical GIS concepts and techniques. Participants will learn how to access the rich historical holdings in the map and aerial photo collections and create new GIS data by georeferencing digitized maps and creating GIS data from map features. Attendees will have hands-on time with ArcGIS software. Laptops with requisite software applications will be provided. Participants may also bring a personal laptop with ArcGIS Desktop installed which is free to CU faculty and staff (students may contact Phil White for a free student license). ArcGIS Desktop only works on Windows operating systems.
