Apollo News Snippets – January 2018

  • The Emancipation Proclamation became law on January 1, 1863 and to commemorate this event, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and Emancipation Proclamation.” If you go through the various results, you might find this highly interactive and informative web map about the end of slavery put together by a team supervised by Scott Nesbit of University of Richmond. This map lets you understand the visual patterns of slavery as well as the collapse of the Confederate forces – excellent work on this project!
  • Last month we hoped to find a GIS page for Hawaii’s second largest city, Pearl City, but we failed; and this month we try again with Idaho’s second largest city, Nampa. And while it is not a great website, at least they have one that can be found here. In general, the GIS website is little more than a collection of PDFs that can be accessed at the bottom of the page – with a few more on the assessor site here. Maybe we will have better luck with robust GIS websites when we head back into large states!
