8. Mapping


Today, we will begin our exploration of mapping. While mapping can mean cartography, there are many other types of mapping, such as mapping time and mapping networks, that are important for the digital humanities. This week, we will explore different ways for visualizing time before moving to our lab focused on Keyhole Markup Language.
