Get Paid to Tell Better Stories in GIS

February 23 @ 3:30 pm 4:30 pm

This presentation uses five (5) themes to demonstrate how GIS helps tell better stories across humanities and social sciences, and by extension, their applications in public policy. They all fit under a broad umbrella “Spatial Computational Social Sciences”. Specifically, case studies come from (1) history & linguistics, (2) (urban) economics, (3) sociology (or criminology in particular), (4) public health, and (5) (spatial) planning. The studies have been supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, National Science Foundation, and National Institutes of Health. In every story, the talk addresses what the issue is, where the science is, and what the impacts are.
