Ben Manley, Research Specialist at Rotorus Lakes Council will present this lecture titled “Introduction to Mapping Histories” and demostrate the use of free, basic, online tools that combine maps with text, images or video to create interactive, visual narratives to illustrate your family history.
Ben’s lecture will introduce basic GIS concepts and show examples of map-based storytelling such as biographical, family and iwi histories. There is no requirement to book for the lecture.
Ben will run a follow-on workshop for those that would like some hands-on tuition but these spaces are limited so it would pay to book early. BOOK HERE
