Presenting spatial data using maps and mapping

Do you need to present spatial data? If so digital mapping may be an ideal tool for you.   This term’s “WISER: Maps and Mapping”  presentation will cover both web based resources (online map collections etc) and the digital mapping facilities available in the Bodleian. The course will include a short demonstration and introduction to using  MapInfo and opportunities to practice.

The session will take place on Wednesday 25 May 1.45 – 3.15pm.  > Book your place online

Presenting spatial data using maps and mapping

If you are using spatial data in your research, then you may find that digital mapping is an ideal way to present your findings.   Next week’s WISER session by the Bodleian Map Room will cover both web based resources (online map collections etc) and the digital mapping facilities available in the Bodleian.   

The session will take place on Friday 11 February 12.30-1.30 at Oxford University Computing Services.  Please book your place.
