Great site - showing locational context is important for not just Geography but every subject. How can we understand the complexities of topics like conflict or urban economies or agricultural histories.... without understanding locations and maps?

It was nice to see where everything was happening. I hope it gets updated to more current events. I wish we had something like this when we were looking at the invasion of Kuwait.

Seth Dixon uses ArgGIS to juxtapose maps with the location a video is associated with. 


This idea has crossed my mind before. Now, a video can be contemplated with the spatial accuracy needed. This connects events to a place, and can help students more fully grasp the geospatial distribution of events.

Come learn about one of the greatest discoveries and explorations in our time that recovers the memory of explorers of yesteryear.  These 6 lesson plans are incredibly engaging and are a fantastic example of geographic concepts.

I am totally into archeology and the study of the past I feel it is valuable for all people to learn as much they can from past mistakes and success
