Webinar alert: "Harnessing the Geospatial Components in Social Science Research Data"

Webinar alertIn this webinar (March 20, 2020, 2 PM EDT), co-organized by the American Association of Geographers (AAG) and The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), we will take a look at ICPSR’s data archive from a “geospatial” perspective. This webinar is free and open to anyone interested in accessing data or services related to social science research and/or wants to learn more about geospatial aspects of these data.

Register today!


The webinar will consist of an overview of AAG and ICPSR, followed by a demo on different ways of searching for geography-related data in ICPSR’s archive and a few examples of data containing geospatial identifiers. Finally, a short overview of other scholarly services at ICPSR will be provided, such as the development of ICPSR’s geospatial virtual data enclave (GVDE) infrastructure, leadership and training for the social science research community in data access, curation, methods of research data analysis, and guidance to members about managing their data responsibly and ethically to support research.

Presenters: Bing She (ICPSR), Coline Dony (AAG), and Stuart Hutchings (ICPSR) will take any questions from attendees related to searching and accessing ICPSR data as well as questions on how to harness the geospatial component in these research data. If you are interested to read more details about the AAG or ICPSR’s, and their data archive, we recommend a recent AAG Newsletter article

This virtual workshop will also be offered in person at the Annual Meeting of the AAG in Denver, more info at AAG's conference website.
