September Program for GIS Learning Community

September program for the

UC GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Learning Community.

Date: Wed Sept 28, 2016

Time: 3:15 – 4:25

Venue: Langsam 462

We have three presenters who will talk on very diverse topics.

1st Lightning Talk – Carolyn Hansen – Metadata Librarian, UC Libraries –Digital Humanities projects using GIS visualizations and discuss how GIS applications can be used to answer humanities research questions.

2nd Lightning Talk – Jeremy Koster – Assoc Professor, A&S Anthropology – Using GIS and remote sensing to understand the spread of the agricultural frontier in the rain forests of Nicaragua

In depth presentation – Jeffery Timberlake- Assoc Professor, A&S Sociology – Understanding and accessing census data

We will also be joined by James Lee who will talk briefly about the Digital Humanities and Scholarship Center and his role as Co-Director and his vision for the center.

New Venue for GIS Learning Community

Due to the great response and interest in the GIS Learning Community, we are moving the venue to 201 Braunstein Hall located just down the hall from the GMP Library.

 

UC GIS Learning Community Forming

 

Do you need to visualize your spatial data but don’t know how? Do you have spatial data but don’t know how to map it?  Are you looking for guidance or have expertise to share regarding the analysis of spatial data?  Are you an ArcGIS, A Q-GIS or other GIS program user and want to connect with other people who use these programs?

 

The Geography Graduate Student Organization and UC Libraries will host an organizational meeting on August 31st at 3:30 in 201 Braunstein – map to discuss the formation of a cross disciplinary Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Learning Community.  The goal of the community is to create a user-driven forum for novice and expert practitioners to come together and discuss tools, resources and solutions to questions and new projects that develop as researchers consider the spatial aspects of their data.   We invite interested individual across all of UC to join us in building this community.

 

Light Refreshments will be provided.  Click here to RSVP.  For more information, please contact Amy Koshoffer, Science Informationist, at Koshofae@ucmail.uc.edu.

Big Data Training for Translational Omics Research

Announcing a new summer workshop!

Big Data Training for Translational Omics Research

Purdue University is pleased to announce the first Annual NIH-funded workshop on “Big data training

for translational omics research” in West Lafayette, IN on July 11 – 22, 2016. The two-week workshop will focus on providing biomedical researchers inexperienced in biomedical big data science with entry level training in big data science. The format of the workshop includes a series of problem-based activities to build familiarity and basic competency with established tools and publically available resources. These activities will be complemented by formal lectures on various topics important for big data science. The course is open to faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students.

The costs of tuition, room, and board are covered for accepted applicants!

Intro to GIS workshop

HamCo

Want to work with a geographic information system (GIS) but are not sure where to start?

This workshop is for individuals who want to visualize spatial patterns in data but have no experience with a geographic information system (GIS) software or who want to learn about resources available to the UC community through UC Libraries and the Department of Geography.  Workshop instructors will guide participants as they create a GIS using the software ARCGIS to visualize a dataset and create a map providing further insight into the data.

Monday March 14       1-3 pm GIS Lab – 415 Braunstein Hall

Friday March 18           12:30- 2:30 pm HSL Classroom
