Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with the basic principles and practices of diverse Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Although historical geography is a traditional part of the discipline of history, the use of GIS are not restricted to this subject. Due to the versatile application of GIS in historical research its use has been growing. GIS makes it possible, to add a spatial reference to any kind of historical problem, and with that, it opens new possibilities for research, both in terms of opening new questions, and providing more data to be analysed in more ways. The intention of this course is to involve students in the use of these applications, and with that, broader the potential in their own research. At the first stage the course focuses on developing practical skills on the visualization of data and diverse historical processes. During that, the students will be introduced to open source programs, and free datasets that can be of their assistance. The course will be built up of both theoretical and practical classes. Students will be expected to develop their own term project in the form of diverse GIS maps, which will be presented at the end of the term.

Students are required to bring a laptop, please note in advance if that is a problem.
