Mapping Historic Austin: How to Georeference and Geocode in QGIS 

October 21, 2022, 12-1

The use of geographic information system (GIS) software is emerging as a principal computational methodology in humanities research. Many GIS-driven digital humanities workflows involve the remaking of analog materials containing spatial information—such as maps, images, gazetteers, and directories—into a digital format amenable to computer modeling, processing, and display. This workshop will focus on two common methods used to create geospatial data from digitized materials: georeferencing and geocoding. The tutorial will be done in a popular, open-source GIS software called “QGIS” and will employ data from Texas Digital Humanities’ ongoing research project.

Workshop to be co-hosted by Texas Digital Humanities.
