For all of the Albright group topics this year, there is an inherent geographic component — everything and everyone is tied to a specific place on (or above!) the Earth.
► Use maps as data sources ⇒ not all data is published in articles or databases.
Not all data is published in articles and databases — maps contain an astounding amount and variety of data. When doing research for your project, keep in mind resources such as historic maps, interactive web maps, geospatial datasets, satellite imagery, and published paper maps.
► Use maps to display your data ⇒ you can find a map or make your own.
When you are putting together your group project, remember that maps can convey a lot of information clearly and concisely.
If you have any questions about where to find maps/geospatial data related to your projects or about map-making, contact Tracy Tien (email@example.com).
