On February 10, 7pm EST (Feb 11, 8am HKT), the CRGE will offer an introduction to the OSAGE, a free, online platform that allows users to visualize the spatial distribution of individual religious sites in the Global East, as well as see how geographic regions compare with each other in terms of the number of religious sites. Presenters will introduce the current features of OSAGE, the datasets now available, as well as plans to expand OSAGE in coming years. Discussions will focus on the problems, limitations, and possibilities in using the datasets of OSAGE. The webinar is aimed at scholars interested in incorporating this data into their research, educators using OSAGE in the classroom, and media or government agencies in need of visualization tools of religion in the Global East.

The webinar is free and open to the public. Please contact crge@purdue.edu for inquiries.
