In Focus

Learn how to combine texts, images, and videos alongside maps using Esri's free Story Maps platform. In this workshop, participants will explore different Story Maps templates for showcasing research, develop best practices for avoiding copyright infringement, and design a web-map. Computers and sample data will be available for use. Participants are also welcome to bring their own data.

This workshop will introduce participants to Named Entity Recognition, or the process of algorithmically identifying people, locations, corporations, and other classes of nouns in text corpora. We will help users install and run Stanford's flagship CoreNLP (Natural Language Processing) toolkit to identify entities in text files. Participants are encouraged to bring a small collection of documents they want to analyze during this session.
