Geographic Information Systems (GIS) let users visualize and analyze location-based data. Using GIS, we can address issues that cross discplinary boundaries, such as:

– How can we protect the NYC water supply watersheds?

– What is the best location for a new business franchise?

– How effective is stop and frisk vs. data driven community policing?

– How is the spatial relationship between asthma and communities in the Bronx?


In this half-day workshop, you will:

– Hear from BMCC and CUNY faculty who have used GIS in their teaching and reseach

– Participate in a hands-on GIS activity

– Learn about the spatial data and web-based mapping resources available through the BMCC Philip Randolph Library

– Explore how to design a geospatial activity for classes you teach
