April 7, 2020

Each day we witness the spread of COVID-19 across the globe. How does geography help us understand the movement and impact of this disease? This session will explore the role that geography and location intelligence plays in understanding and analyzing past and present day events such as epidemics/pandemics, migrations, and cultural diffusions. Time will also be spent modeling how to use classroom ready WebGIS activities to teach the interplay between history and geography for a variety of disciplines.
