GIS at UCD and on the Web: Show Your Data on a Map
Are you creating maps for your research?
The use of maps enables the visualisation of data and helps to make an argument easier to understand. As well as making a lasting impression they provide an eye-catching way to make data coherent, to see patterns emerge and to communicate research findings.
To encourage the use of maps in a wide variety of disciplines and to inspire our own PhD students and researchers to create maps without requiring a big learning curve we run workshops in Google MyMaps, Scribble Maps and StoryMap JS.
We would like to find examples of maps created by researchers / PhD students which used any of these mapping products to visualise their research outcomes or discoveries.
If you are interested in sharing a link to your map and some brief information about your research please get in touch by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
With your permission we’ll put a link to your map / research on this page.
