Unit 5: Understanding geo-location

Our fifth unit examines the “where” of online content, also known as geo-location. In this unit, you’ll learn why it’s so important to independently geo-locate imagery that you find on social media. We’ve also included a number of interactives, so you can practice these skills. See FAQs about the course here.
