New Events and Workshops from GIS Services – Spring 2023

By Justin Sorensen

Welcome to the Spring 2023 Semester at the University of Utah. As we progress through the semester, there will be a number of events offered and presented in ProtoSpace by the Creativity and Innovation Services team. As part of that team, GIS Services has prepared several events this semester to add to your calendars:

Weekly Drop-In GIS Sessions

Our weekly drop-in GIS Sessions are returning for the Spring 2023 Semester. These open sessions provide a great opportunity to visit ProtoSpace and discuss geospatial projects you are developing while receiving expert collaborative support. Additionally, within the ProtoSpace 2751 suite, you will find equipment and resources designed with computational analysis in mind that enhance project and research development – from processing and analysis to visualization and presentation.

Drop-In GIS Sessions will be held weekly throughout Spring Semester on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00am – 12:00pm in ProtoSpace 2751. Equipment in this space can be accessed during open hours of the ProtoSpace 2751 suite or when scheduled events are not being conducted – (please see the Marriott Library Room Scheduler for more information).

Creating 3D City Landscape Models – (Advanced Workshop)

Returning for Spring Semester is an advanced workshop that instructs individuals on the processes and applications for creating, rendering, and printing detailed 3D city landscape models of various locations. This workshop will be held on Wednesday March 1st from 12:30pm – 1:30pm in ProtoSpace 2751.

Introduction to Social Explorer

This new workshop for the Spring 2023 Semester will introduce participants to the features, tools, and benefits of using Social Explorer as a data visualization resource within projects and research they are developing. This workshop will be held on Wednesday March 15th from 12:30pm – 1:30pm in ProtoSpace 2751.

New Library Guide Available – (Data Visualization, Computation, & Analysis)

We are excited to present a new Library Guide containing a growing array of data visualization tools, resources, guides, and databases that have been identified for use in visualization projects. While not all programs have been vetted by our staff, it presents a variety of options to test and consider. The new Library Guide is available for viewing at:
