Rutgers’ Digital Humanities Initiative and the Libraries will host a Digital Lab Series of five workshops throughout the spring semester at the Alexander Library, Rutgers University–New Brunswick.  The workshops will focus on some of the sources, methodologies, and theories of digital scholarship.  All will be held in room IHL 415 (fourth floor).  No prior experience is necessary.  RSVP here.

February’s lab focuses on CartoDB, a web-based geographic information system (GIS) that allows users to map, analyze and share location data. By looking at examples and doing exercises, users will get familiar with spatial data formats, creating and geocoding locations (points), visualizing data layers, and constructing some basic queries to manipulate their data.

The workshop will also explore spatial problems that arise in historical or literary studies, including the frequency of place names, travel overviews, and geospatial changes through time.
