"GIS has given us the chance to re-examine how the Civil War battle was won and lost."
Seth Dixon's insight:
July 1-3 mark the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, and it seems only appropriate to share these rich, interactive resources to commemorate the event (this particular interactive feature uses an ESRI storymap template). This fantastic example from the Smithsonian Magazine shows how history teaching and research can be benefited by using GIS with the example of Gettysburg. Many student today visit the sites of the Battle of Gettysburg and get a greater appreciation of battle by getting a sense of the lay of the land and the challenged confronting both armies. National Geographic has additionally put together resources to made out other Civil War battles. GIS is not a tool that is just for geographers; any analysis that requires spatial analysis can be mapped.
The remarkable pictures show scenes from France today with atmospheric photographs taken in the same place during the war superimposed on top.
In this fastinating set of images, Dutch artist and historian Jo Teeuwisse merges her passions literally by superimposing World War II photographs on to modern pictures of the where the photos were originally taken. This serves as a reminder that places are rich with history; to understand the geography of a place, one must also know it's history (and vice versa).
This is one of the more impressive cultural landmarks in the world, and an architectural marvel. Studying the cultural landscape reveals that multiple 'layers' are superimposed one upon another. This phenomenon, known as sequent occupance, is most plainly manifested in this site. The Haga Sophia has been both a Christian and Muslim holy site, depending which political empire has controlled the city of Istanbul.
The the United States, 9/11 is memorialized in our landscapes and is etched in our collective consciousness. This coming Tuesday is the anniversary and Teaching History has put together a host of teaching materials about the importance, impact of the terrorist attacks of Septemper 11th, 2001 on the United States and the world.
One of the amazing memories of my trip to Europe was visiting the Vatican and developing a kink in my neck from marveling at the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. No photography is allowed to preserve reverence in what many consider not only a cultural heritage site, but a holy site. This link is the next best thing to being in the Vatican staring at the Sistine Chapel. We might not be able to travel the world with our students, but this can help us bring the world to our classroom.
