AURIN and Tinker workshop on spatial data – October 8th!

Published by Tyne Sumner on

Are you interested in learning more about how spatial data can enhance your HASS research? Do you ponder how the ‘where’ question of your research can be visualised? Does your data gathering for your research include location information that could be mapped?

The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) are teaming up with Tinker to host an exciting workshop on all things spatial data to answer these questions and more!

Geospatial data, analysis and visualisation are increasingly important components of humanities and social sciences research. Location and references to parts of the Earth can allow researchers to better understand the often complex interrelationships existing between humanity and space over time.

Come along to this workshop where you will learn how to identify and account for spatial components of your research. Whether it is geocoding addresses or place names extracted from historical documents or manipulating data to work with data from other disciplines, you can benefit from taking part and learning the foundation skills of understanding the geographical aspect of your research (geo- referencing) and identifying the spatial elements and preparing them for analysis. (geo-coding)

The workshop is open to HASS researchers throughout Australia and across multiple disciplines.

You can attend in person in Melbourne or online via video conferencing.

This will be a hands-on learning experience, please bring a laptop and charger.
