The Claremont Colleges Library is pleased to be offering 4 weeks of online GIS learning opportunities for the Claremont community this summer. These are separate online workshops that will introduce learners to certain components of GIS, including the ArcGIS suite, drones, and the QGIS platform.

We’ll start out with the basics of ArcGIS Online and StoryMaps Thursday, July 1st and move into more specialized topics, such as drones and using historic maps as we proceed. Each session includes a mix of digital “lecture” content (for example, websites or videos highlighting key concepts and scholarly uses) and a brief exercise, where you will get some hands-on experience with the techniques and tools covered in each workshop. You can do this at your own pace.

Each Thursday, we will meet up from 1-2:30 on Zoom to share our work, ask questions, get started, or just watch and learn. No pressure to participate! The sessions will be recorded and posted to the GIS Summer Workshops site.

More information (and weekly content updates) are on the Claremont Colleges Summer 2021 GIS Workshops page.
