Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The present course aims to give an insight to the advanced use of Geographical Information Systems primarily, but not exclusively, in the field of historical research and provide the students with useful, hands-on experience and knowledge that they can use in their further studies and work.
Although historical geography is a traditional part of the discipline of history, the use of GIS is 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 present course is the continuation of the course 070234-1 AR Methoden-Workshop (2019S), where the visualisation of (historical) data has been in the focus of the course. In this second stage, the intention of this course is to involve students deeper in the use of these applications, and with that, broader the potential in their own research, by learning to analyze the visualised data. During that, the students will be introduced to several methods for vector and raster analysis - their practical know-how, and also their potential use in (historical) research.
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.
