Spatial Analysis & Data Visualization @ SFSU



One of the goals of the “Space, Culture, and Urban Policy” project is to disseminate curriculum materials to social science faculty throughout the United States. In addition to the published modules, conference papers, journal articles, and material on this website, the project has conducted two workshops and participated in a third in which the materials were used:

  • In the summer of 2004, the project conducted a five-day training workshop at SFSU for 12 social science professors using beta versions of both the research methods and data analysis modules. Click here to see the summer 2004 workshop agenda.
  • In the summer of 2005, project PI, Richard LeGates, and project co-PI, Ayse Pamuk, with other faculty and staff from SFSU and U.C. Santa Barbara, taught a six-day workshop at SFSU for 21 social science professors in collaboration with U.C. Santa Barbara’s Center for Spatially Integrated Social Science “Spatial Perspectives for Curriculum Enhancement (SPACE)” program and the University Consortium for GIS (UCGIS). A pre-publication version of all of the research methods exercises was used in this workshop.
  • In the spring of 2005, Richard LeGates used two of the module exercises in a training workshop on GIS applications in urban studies in Hartford, Connecticut for twenty social science professors and students from small liberal arts colleges under the auspices of the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE)’s GIS initiative.
