Introduction to Digital Mapping Workshop
November 3, 2013
Are you fascinated by the potential of digital maps to expand the way we understand and experience places? Come learn how digital mapping is reshaping the way historians and preservationists in New York City communicate and engage the public in understanding the places around us. This workshop, led by urban historian Liz McEnaney and interactive media designer Phillip Pond, will introduce participants to innovative websites and apps that map history and will teach participants how to make their own customizable interactive NYC map in Google. User-experience (UX) design will also be discussed. No prior programming knowledge is required, but participants should be comfortable with Google maps. Co-sponsored by the CUNY Graduate Center Digital Initiatives and the CUNY Center for Urban Research.
