GIS Day Hackathon

For GIS Day, the World History Center and Urban Studies at the University of Pittsburgh are hosting an online hackathon that will introduce participants to a variety of digital skills related to geography and mapping. Participants will learn how to perform a basic analysis of a textual newspaper corpus. They will also learn how to build a gazetteer of place names, geocode the coordinates for those places (that is find the latitude and longitudes), and make basic maps in ESRI’s free online mapping portal ArcGIS online. ArcGIS is geographic information system (GIS) software that is used to make a wide variety of map-based visualizations and analyses. Come work on a project for American history and learn valuable skills in the process in a friendly, collaborative environment. This event is open to all.

Registered participants will receive instructions for how to join the hackathon via Zoom on the day of the event.
