Anthropologists Building Careers in GIS (Geographic Information System)
As data increasingly becomes a common language across many industries and occupations, anthropology's methods and perspective, including storytelling, are more important than ever. This webinar highlights the work of two anthropologists working in the data-centric field of GIS -- one applying GIS within city government and the other carrying out research and design for a GIS software company. They talk about their current roles, how their anthropological training helped them enter into different parts of the GIS industry, the analytical tools they use to carry out their daily tasks, and the usefulness of stories in conveying what they learn from their data.
- Presenters: Gideon Singer and Kyle Jones, followed by Q&A
