1101- GIS Prepare
- Chose three spatial data for our two readings – Political Revolutions and American Indian Gender Relations in Antebellum america. What three spatial items for each article would you plot if you wanted to create a map to help someone understand the events included in these readings?
- Why did you chose your six (total) spatial data?
- Other than using maps to travel by car, bus, or bike, what other maps do you regularly use? For example, I have a map that tracks all of my family’s Apple devices. I also have a Hobo-Dyer Equal Area world map on my wall in my home office so that I can remember the positions of countries.
- Aside from accurate geographic information, what one piece of metadata would you want to see attached to all historical map items? For example, I would want all maps of the Americas to designate what tribe claimed the are refernced at that period and whether that tribe was matrilineal. So, instead of "Phildelphia- Pennsylvania," metadata might read "Anscentral lands of the Lenapehoking, Matrilineal clan structure, Deleware River."

From our Discord Question and Answers.
Example: using the lead article on the StarTribune website right (https://www.startribune.com/minnesota-nursing-schools-team-up-to-confront-severe-shortage/600212964/) about and Minnesota Colleges. I see that there are three cities mentioned in the article where nurse training occurs: Minneapolis, Mankato, and Rochester. So, I would use those as my spatial data. Then I would explain (question #2) that I chose that spatial data because the locations of nurse training is important to understand the larger issue of nurse shortage in Minnesota.
