If you head over to the Humanities Institute’s Digital Humanities and Media Studies page, you can find my blog post A Crash Course on Digital Mapping for the Moderately Technologically Savvy. The covers what mapping website or program might be best for your needs, and provides brief introductions to Carto, Google Maps, Neatline, and QGIS. It has plenty of links, so hopefully it will provide anyone interested with a solid starting point on digital mapping.
I have some future posts on mapping and geography planned that I hope to post as guest blogs. The most immediate plan is to discuss the deep methodological problem that using contemporary geographic standards posses. Should we really be naturalizing ideas of absolute space with our maps at the same time we challenge them in our writing?
