The Spatial Sciences Research & Learning Cluster is a community for people (undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, post docs, staff, etc.) at UC Davis and our immediate community with an interest in working with spatial data. Participation is open to everyone, at any skill level. The Spatial Sciences Research & Learning Cluster is a welcoming and supportive community.
This research and learning cluster provides two specific avenues for engaging with spatial data:
#maptimeDavis Workshops – Instructor-lead formal workshops teaching a specific skills. These workshops typically require participants to bring a laptop computer with software installed pertaining to the topic of the workshop (we’ll let you know what you need before hand).
#maptimeDavis Studio – A time for community discussion and learning. Typical meetings include introductions; descriptions of people’s work; sharing of successes, trouble spots, and questions; and group learning (usually planned in the previous meeting). Previously, this group has collaboratively learned ESRI Story Maps and spatial SQL for PostGIS. You do not need to have active, on-going research to participate or be a valuable resource to this community. We recognize that ideas, learning, and engagement happen on many levels.
How to participate: During the summer, #maptimeDavis Studio will meet biweekly on Tuesdays 10:00-12:00 in via Zoom starting on June 23rd. #maptimeDavis Workshops will take a break and resume in the Fall (most likely via Zoom).
