We are delighted to announce a workshop on Digital Mapping, supported by Cardiff University’s Data Innovation Research Institute. From the reconfiguration of historic maps to the visualisation of new data, digital mapping has been adopted in exciting and innovative ways, as the projects showcased in this workshop demonstrate. The speakers will outline the decisions they made about how and what to ‘map’, the methodologies used and the challenges they faced. By exploring these projects and ideas, the workshop will locate digital mapping as a dynamic and collaborative space that radically changes the meanings of what is, and can be, mapped.
Speakers: Jon Anderson, Christopher Fleet, Einion Gruffudd, Ian Harvey, Mike Jones, James Loxley, Rachel Murphy, Matthew Sangster, Joanna Taylor.
Organisers: Julia Thomas, Anthony Mandal.
Registration is free for delegates but places are very limited. The deadline for registration is midday, 26 May 2017. Please register via Eventbrite by visiting: https://digital-mapping.eventbrite.co.uk.
All sessions take place in Room 0.31 of the John Percival Building, Cardiff University. Registration and lunch will be in the Coffee Shop of the John Percival Building.
