Geography and Spatial Thinking across the Curriculum: Why Place and Geography Matter

October 27
1:00 PM — 5:00 PM
S341, 199 Chambers St.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) let users visualize and analyze location-based data. Using GIS, we can address issues that cross discplinary boundaries, such as:

- How can we protect the NYC water supply watersheds?

- What is the best location for a new business franchise?

- How effective is stop and frisk vs. data driven community policing?

- How is the spatial relationship between asthma and communities in the Bronx?

 

In this half-day workshop, you will:

- Hear from BMCC and CUNY faculty who have used GIS in their teaching and reseach

- Participate in a hands-on GIS activity

- Learn about the spatial data and web-based mapping resources available through the BMCC Philip Randolph Library

- Explore how to design a geospatial activity for classes you teach

 

Register for this workshop:
