Locating Your Research was an introduction to GIS and spatial media for arts, humanities and social science doctoral candidates funded by the Scottish Graduate School. Students got an overview of the wide variety of techniques, tools and practices available when including geo-location in research; gained basic, practical, hands-on experience of data collection, introductory GIS skills, and GIS-based story mapping and software using QGIS; learned to set-up and collect location linked data using mobile devices and free mobile apps; and developed an understanding of some of the ethical dimensions of research using geospatial media.
