Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and other spatial technologies such as GPS and virtual globes are becoming increasingly used within disciplines such as history, archaeology, literary studies, religious studies and classics. This free workshop, sponsored by Spatial Literacy in Teaching (SPLINT) and the Subject Centre for History, Classics and Archaeology, will provide a basic introduction to GIS as an approach to humanities research and as a technology.

The workshop is aimed at a broad audience including post-graduate or masters students, members of academic staff, and holders of major grants and those intending to apply for them. Professionals in other relevant sectors interested in finding out about GIS applications are also welcome. We also particularly welcome participation from people who teach GIS or who teach in humanities disciplines and would like to include spatial technologies in their curriculum
