Mapping World Heritage

Mapping World Heritage | Navigate |
Students learn about UNESCO World Heritage sites and use pictures and clues to identify the locations of the sites on a large map. They use geographic coordinates to refine the locations of the sites and consider how geographic coordinates are part of a helpful system of location.

Nice job Dominik, Pascal, and Jack. Great to see how Proceedural has evolved with the acquistiion by ESRI (now 2-3 years ago). I'm glad ESRI has continued to take City Engine further. 

Love the swipe tool. Great urban planning tool.

ESRI's acquisition of CityEngine is probably one of the smartest tech acquisitions in the geospatial market in a long time. As the product and technology integration  rolls forward we get to see how very smart  the acquisition was.The WebGL publishing capabilities are very exciting for city planners.  Great video of highlights from the recent ESRI user group conference its great seeing how the products are evolving.

These maps help show different patterns in the United States throughout different periods of American history such as during the Civil War, the locations of the first railroads, difference in the North and South, and also mapping the constitutional convention. it really help put it all in a geographical perspective. 

This helps create a focus on the movement of people, the "whys" of history, and the different political states and counties we have made over the years.

Use of geospatial technologies, such as GIS, remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), and online maps-

This article explains how GIS can be used multiple ways, whether it be in location, past, present, or predictions on the future. These GIS examples show how  the American Civil War and many other things would have been seen as.

This article demonstrates the use of geospatial technologies by showing how American history would be like if represented by GIS.
