RJ Ramey is the founder of Auut Studio, which gave birth to the digital project MonroeWorkToday.org. There he broke some of the rules and stale expectations for digital humanities, and learned a lot along the way. Now he teams up with other scholars to do the same.
"Got geo data?" Getting Started with Mapbox (Parts I & II)
When you want to make a digital map, there seem to be a world of splintered choices, and none of them quite right. In this two part workshop (morning + afternoon sessions), digital humanist and mapmaker RJ Ramey of Auut Studio will demystify the choices and provide a framework for how to make a good decision. We will then gain practical skills for cartography and data visualization on the Mapbox platform, which is more like a ‘lego set’ than just one single tool.
No prior mapping experience is necessary. The only software is your web browser. This is a full day workshop broken into two parts. There will be a 1 hour lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions.
