We have just opened a new section for an online course on digital mapping this spring semester, GEG 212 Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS): GEG 212-D002 (57539).
If you know of any students who might be interested in or who could benefit from learning how to make digital maps, including election maps, maps for social justice or climate justice, or learning about mapping and cartography as methods for social science research, please help share the course information.
This course is tailored for beginners (no previous mapping knowledge required). Students work on weekly mapping projects engaging in different topics or case studies, including U.S. elections, unhoused communities or homelessness in NYC, the uneven geographies of the global pandemic, redlining, among many others.
Many students who have completed this intro course have secured paid internships working with professional GIS teams at the NYC Parks and Recreation and Housing and Urban Development (HUD). For questions or more information about the course, please feel free to reach out.
