Have you heard of, or been wondering about, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and how it might benefit your work?

Are you an university researcher and looking to learn more about, gain access to, or be able to use ArcGIS Pro?

Are you looking to become familiar with the use of Storymaps as part of your research, assignments, or instruction on campus?

Then please attend this one-day, in-person workshop on Wednesday, May 8 at St Francis Xavier University!

This event is being hosted by an interdisciplinary team from St. Francis Xavier University representing the Digital Humanities Centre, Library and Aquatics Resources Program to assist those on campus who wish to learn about, refresh their knowledge or enhance their understanding of the capabilities of GIS.

This workshop will consist of both lecture and “hands-on” components, providing attendees with the necessary theoretical and practical experience to what GIS is, ArcGIS software and familiarity with the creation of Storymaps. This full-day (9AM-4:30PM) event will consist of 4 sessions that will explain what GIS, the software used, how it can be of benefit to your research and will introduce and guide participants through the creation of storymaps using ArcGIS Pro software.

There is no cost to attend this event, however registration is require as space is limited. (Lunch and snacks provided.) Open to all, regardless of discipline or career stage.
