Migrant Connections: Immigrant and Refugee Stories from Utah to Greece

One of the things I enjoy most about GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology is the ability to present projects and research in new and exciting ways. One area in particular is the storytelling process and the ability to apply methods for bringing new light and insights to subjects that not only educate, but also engage viewers on an entirely new level. For this week’s Map Monday release, I will be highlighting a previous collaborative project demonstrating a basic method for visualizing location components as part of the storytelling process.
