My Global Identity: Interactive Mapping

Winona State University

12:00 PM

The theme team worked with WSU students and faculty in the MIS-College of Business department to develop a series of interactive mapping visuals to help us as a community to understand our global connections. WSU community members were invited to participate by taking the survey(s), exploring live data visualizations of responses from the WSU community, incorporating these topics into classroom or extra-curricular group conversations about what the survey questions and visuals mean to individual identities and what aspects of global identities are not represented by these maps and data. Responses at the end of the theme year are preserved in copies of the surveys and screenshots of the map visuals. A PDF document with screenshot of the online maps is provided in this record.
