Personal Mapping (Spring 2014)
Design and Digital Media
Who are you? That's the question personal mapping attempts to answer. This class will introduce students to a battery of cartographic, data-visualization, and ideation exercises to give them an introduction to personal mapping.
Students will create visual maps that shed light on themselves each person's experiences, convictions, and relationships while at the same time, allowing others to find points of similarity and difference in their own story. Using the "collection" as a basic building block, the class will investigate various data collection and visualization methodologies, look at the contemporary world of personal mapping, and get an introduction to entry-level personal data tracking and analysis apps.
This class has been canceled due to low enrollment. We encourage students to register as soon as possible for future classes.
