Beyond the Digitized Slide: The Mapping Edition

Welcome to the Hands-on Mapping Portion of this year’s Getty Summer Institute!

 “What is a map? What is in a map? How do you map?”

In the Humanities, mapping can be defined in so many different ways, there is no easy answer to these questions. In fact, your research can dictate the parameter of choices that define your map. Below are a few examples of just how multi-faceted mapping can be for the humanities, and how the digital can help scope and develop innovative approaches to projects. How then might your project utilize these tools?
