Information Digitization In The Humanities: The Cultural Assessment Interest Group, Hannah Scates Kettler Dec 2016

Information Digitization In The Humanities: The Cultural Assessment Interest Group, Hannah Scates Kettler

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

The Cultural Assessment Interest Group is a new Digital Library Federation Assessment Interest Group initiative that sprang from many conversations held during last year’s DLF Forum following Safiya Noble’s keynote about power structures in information technology entitled “Power, Privilege, and the Imperative to Act”, and continued to gain steam with the keynote during 2016’s DLF Forum by Stacie Williams “All Labor is Local”. Growing within the digital library community was a sense of unease as evidenced by the themes of such talks. Perhaps we have not been quite as aware we’d hoped when it came to ...

Use Of Drones And Gis To Identify Geoglyphs In The Sihuas Valley, Peru, Felipe Gonzalez-Macqueen Nov 2016

Use Of Drones And Gis To Identify Geoglyphs In The Sihuas Valley, Peru, Felipe Gonzalez-Macqueen

GIS Day

Geoglyphs are anthropogenic features built onto the landscape by either removing a layer from the ground to expose the soil underneath or adding layers on top to create a relief. The most well-known examples of this are in the Nazca Valley, Peru where features can measure up to 400m long and have a variety of shapes. However not all geoglyphs are as big and complex as these, as is the case of the Sihuas Valley, Peru where geoglyphs are smaller and less elaborate in comparison. To identify and map these geoglyphs and other features, we used a combination of satellite ...

The Librarian's Survival Guide To The 'Big Deal': Tools For Unbundling, Leanne Olson, Alie Visser, Samuel Cassady, Doug Lynch

Leanne Olson

In 2016, the Canadian loonie fell to 77% of the U.S. dollar, creating unexpected financial challenges for collections management. Examining usage statistics was the clear first place to start when evaluating resources for cancellation - but would data-driven decisions based purely on cost per use be adequate?

In this joint presentation by Western University and EBSCO Information Services, we will look beyond cost per use, and focus on how Western built on the "big deal" analysis work initiated by the University de Montreal, adding a journal overlap analysis and home-grown method of performing citation analysis using Web of Science and ...

The Impact Of Management On The Movement And Home Range Size Of Indiana's Eastern Hellbender Salamanders, Emily B. Mccallen, Bart T. Kraus, Nick G. Burgmeier, Rod N. Williams Nov 2016

The Impact Of Management On The Movement And Home Range Size Of Indiana's Eastern Hellbender Salamanders, Emily B. Mccallen, Bart T. Kraus, Nick G. Burgmeier, Rod N. Williams

Purdue GIS Day

Eastern hellbenders (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis alleganiensis) are a large, fully aquatic salamander species distributed throughout watersheds in the eastern United States. In Indiana, hellbenders were once found in tributaries of the Ohio River and the Wabash River but are now restricted to a single river in the southern portion of the state. Monitoring within the Blue River over twenty years has revealed a steady decrease in the total abundance of hellbenders and a shift towards older individuals in the age structure of the population. Concerned over the apparent lack of recruitment, the Indiana department of natural resources performed a series of ...

Mapping Religion And Chinese Society, Jonathan E.E. Pettit Nov 2016

Mapping Religion And Chinese Society, Jonathan E.E. Pettit

Purdue GIS Day

Over the past two decades, the Chinese government has enacted a series of regulations that have made the collection of geospatial data illegal, and have tried to use existing technologies (e.g., cell phone towers, online mapping programs) to avert attempts to map sensitive areas in China. This talks examines the recent work of Purdue graduate students at the Center on Religion and Chinese Society, who have developed a web-based GIS program that provides researchers worldwide a way to make and use accurate data on religious and demographic data in China.

Introduction To The New Indiana Geospatial Coordinate System (Ingcs), Matthew Badger Nov 2016

Introduction To The New Indiana Geospatial Coordinate System (Ingcs), Matthew Badger

Purdue GIS Day

The Indiana Geospatial Coordinate System (InGCS) was approved and adopted by INDOT in 2015 and will soon be the primary coordinate reference system used on INDOT survey and design projects. Other agencies and organizations in the geospatial arena are encouraged to make use of this system of low distortion projections as well. Many of the more widely used geospatial software vendors have since included the InGCS in their platforms to support their customers’ needs. Please refer to the InGCS webpage at www.in.gov/indot/InGCS.htm for additional information.
