Fall 2015 ArcGIS workshops at Rodgers Library

While geographic information systems are the tools of choice for geographers, geographic information technologies have applications in many disciplines. Tools used by geographers to map the earth’s surface can be used by biologists to track migration patterns, social scientists to identify food deserts, epidemiologists to monitor the spread of disease, and humanists to create literary and historical maps.

This semester, the Department of Geography’s Dr. Steven Ericson will teach two introductory workshops on the widely used ArcGIS suite of GIS software.
