Today I found a presentation that shows the history of GIS and some of it's present day applications. Click here to view.
Here are three presentations showing my goal in using maps:
Violence in Chicago. Where Will We Be in 10 Years? click here
No General Goes to War Without a Map. Click here
How to make your own map stories. Click here
These are three of more than 60 presentations on Scribd.com. Most include maps.
If you have a GIS capacity and want to take ownership of the work I've started, to carry it forward into future years, I'd like to connect with you. Introduce yourself with a comment, or via Twitter or Facebook.
