Event description
Visualise your research using maps

About this Event

This session will introduce some key aspects of visualising your research data using web-based maps. You will have the opportunity to get hands-on and follow along with a demonstration of how to create your own simple web-based map, using an online service and an institutional version of Omeka/Neatline. There will also be a short overview of using JavaScript to create maps based on Open Source technology, for publication on the web.

Learning Objectives

After the workshop, participants should:

  1. Know when and why to should use web-based maps for data visualisation;
  2. Understand the conceptual and technological components of a web-based map;
  3. Be able to use an online service to present data on a map of their own.

Are you a Digital Scholar?

Developing skills with digital technologies can be a challenge for researchers interested in digital and open scholarship.

To help, the Library, in partnership with the Moore Institute, presents a series of informal workshops to share practice-based expertise, know-how, and experience in technologies and methods, that will enhance your experience of newer forms of scholarship.
