DVS Workshop: Story Maps with ArcGIS Online

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-01-31 18:00
Wed, Jan 31, 2018
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
"ArcGIS Online is a companion to the ArcGIS client that allows members of a group to store and share spatial data online and to perform GIS analysis in a browser environment. It can be used independently or in conjunction with an ArcGIS client. We'll focus on its Story Maps, which provide a way to disseminate a finished product in an interactive web interface. The audience doesn't need to know or have access to any ArcGIS products. Story Maps allow the integration of other media (photos, text, videos) and allow following changes over space and time. Attendees will need to bring a laptop computer."

Remembering Ursula K. Le Guin

Humanities - Tue, 2018-01-30 20:51

Ursula K. Le Guin passed away last week, which is a great loss for both the science fiction and fantasy genres.  There have been some great retrospectives and reflections written about her in the last week.  I especially like The Subversive Imagination of Ursula K. Le Guin and Ten Things I Learned from Ursula K. Le Guin.  You might also want to see what Neil Gaiman had to say in his essay Ursula K. Le Guin: The Rabble-Rouser with a Gentle Smile.

Here is Le Guin’s response when asked what she wanted to see happen to her books after she died:

“I want them to be available, I want cheap paper editions of them, I want them to be continuously downloaded in forty different languages, I want them to be read, I want them to be argued about, I want people to cry over them, I want unreadable dissertations written about them, I want people to get angry with them, I want people to love them.”

In that spirit, here are several titles we have in our collection:

The Unreal and The Real: The Selected Short Stories of Ursula K. Le Guin

The Left Hand of Darkness

The Lathe of Heaven: A Novel

The Telling

A Wizard of Earthsea

The Complete Orsinia: Malafrena Stories and Songs

The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia

The Birthday of the World and Other Stories

She also wrote several collections of essays and frequently wrote about the craft of writing:

Steering the Craft: A Twenty-First Century Guide to Sailing the Sea of Story

The Wave in the Mind: Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader, and the Imagination

No Time to Spare: Thinking about What Matters

Dancing at the Edge of the World: Thoughts on Words, Women, Places

Let me end with this awesome letter she wrote in 1987:

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of using Adobe Illustrator, the professional standard in vector graphics software for creating diagrams and infographics. Many people avoid using it because of its steep learning curve, but you will see that it is quite easy to combine simple shapes to create interesting and clear diagrams, and to give all your work that professional edge.
