Event Date: 7-8 September
Are you an arts and humanities doctoral student? Would you like to learn how to
use mapping technology to display and analyse data within your research? If the
answer to these questions is yes, then this free, SGSAH-funded course is for you!
Learn to use the open-source mapping software QGIS to display and analyse your
data geographically, through classroom tutorials, talks from guest speakers, and
an interactive outing in Edinburgh.
The course will be an introduction for researchers from varied disciplines who
may not have access to training or who might be intimidated by the technical
nature of the software. Starting from a beginner level, this course will show
participants how to create visually interesting graphics for their theses and how
to analyse data from their own research.
There are eighteen funded places available on this course, which will run at the
University of Edinburgh on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 September 2017. For more
