This Monday, 11/21, the Spatial Analysis Lab is hosting a Media Monitoring + Mapathon event to support a crowd-sourced map of post-election harassment incidents across the country. Volunteers will look through reports of harassment incidents in traditional media and public social media sources, locate the events on a map, and fill out a form of information about the event. After being reviewed for duplicates, the data will then be added to the public map, which helps users visualize the spatial patterns of harassment incidents. Attendees will also have the opportunity to provide feedback on the current map which will be relayed to its creators and discuss how this dataset might be useful to research, activism, and journalism.
This event requires no prior knowledge of GIS! Please register using the form below.
