CSLS Geospatial Tools Group

The goal of the group is to work discover how geospatial tools can help us create better scholarship.  We work with tools such as ArcGIS, GeoJSON and Neatline.

We will be developing our skills in GeoJSON this semester.

We have already had a very successful first meeting.  Our next meeting is on October 10, 2014 at 12:30pm.  

The format will be:  12:30 - 1:00    Discussion of MAPS by Franco Moretti.  Click here to access the text.

                                    1:00 - 2:00   Skill building with GeoJSON:  lines and polygons

Your homework for October 10 is to plot ten locations on a Mapbox map.  Please contact Todd Hughes for any questions.

Special Note:   When working with the code for the 10 October meeting, specifically with the (longitude, latitude) code for initial focus of the map, there might be a need to format it as (latitude, longitude)-- just this time.  Steven Wenz reported that his map focus worked better this way.

Technical training on ArcGIS and other open-source tools is available. For further information, please contact Lindsay Fox.
