Buchanan Library Fellows Presentations
Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Central Library Classroom 418A
3:00 pm -4:00 pm
Please join us on Wednesday, April 18 at 3:00 pm to hear Buchanan Library Fellows present on their spring semester projects. Over the course of the semester, these students learned to solve practical spatial problems using cutting edge Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools. Students identified interdisciplinary questions amenable to spatial solutions, learned how to collect and curate geographic information, and designed real-world mapping applications. Buchanan Fellows identified key issues in their campus and volunteer work — everything from Vanderbilt theatrical performances to Fire Department EMS call data – or turned to social justice issues and politics — Open Table Nashville data; Salafi-jihadist training camps in Libya; and poverty alleviation initiatives in Mexico — and projects that mapped family histories. The results show the range of ways that geographic data can be used to enhance and enrich research across disciplines. Please join us as they discuss what they learned.
