As part of the traveling exhibit, “Mapping Mexican History: Territories in Dispute, Identities in Question” currently on display at the Pecan Library at South Texas College in McAllen, TX, South Texas College will host a FREE workshop on using digital tools for research. Using historical Mexican maps held at the University of Texas at Austin’s Benson Latin American Collection, StoryMapJS will be introduced, a straightforward web-based authoring platform for the presentation of map and visual material analyses. Attendees will be shown how to create a set of zoom-able images, host them on Github, and bring them into StoryMapJS to create a dynamic visual-based story.
