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
