Tuesday, July 21, 2015 - 8:30pm to 9:45pm

Wayne Marci (DANM '15) will present his paper, Shift – Indian Country's Changing Landscape, at the ESRI UC Conference in San Diego in July. The session is titled, "Mapping Native Lands – Historical and Present Day." This is work that he has been creating while a DANM student.


Shift, Indian Country’s Changing Landscape utilizes the Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties archive by Charles K. Jappler; updated with geo-location data, and geo-referenced maps created by Dan G. Cole for the Handbook of North American Indians. Shift positions all Indigenous land loss, battles, and treaties from 1775-1923, in what is now the contiguous United States. The interactive story-map is comprised of the uses of ArcGIS, mapbox.js, TileMill, and front-end web-development. - See more at:
