This is really neat

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 24, 2014 7:38 PM

Often times I find it hard to think of history as simply a recolection of time. Youspend your childhood looking at timelines and learning history linearly you often forget that this is not the case. I found this work to be very asthetically pleasing and helpful as well.

I'm a believer in using Web Maps in my geography courses and I think that is fairly obvious why.  This article expands the uses of web maps beyond just the geography classroom to all the social studies.  Thanks to Joseph Kerski, one of the best advocates that GIS educators could ever have, for writing this article.
