GIS Workshop with Lisl Kotheimer | Nov. 15

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for Urban Design: An Introductory Workshop

GIS enables designers to use and create spatial information for understanding and designing places and their context. By viewing and overlaying thematic layers of geographic information, we can better integrate the built and natural environments and design places that are more beautiful, equitable, ecologically healthy, and economically robust. GIS maps are both a design tool and a design outcome. This workshop will acquaint you with the basic principles and mechanics of GIS and inspire you to produce maps and diagrams that are clear, informative, and visually compelling.

The GIS workshop will be held at the CUDC on November 15, from 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM. It is free and open to the public, but non KSU students must bring their own GIS equipped laptops. Space is limited so please RSVP to cudc @ kent.edu if you would like to attend.
