Visual Thinking with Spatial Data: Using Spatial Organization to Access Library Information

PRESENTER:
Lesley Kadish and Jennifer Jones,  Minnesota Historical Society; Leah Ujda, UWI Digital Collections Center  

SESSION DESCRIPTION:
Spatial organization offers a new way to interpret and present information in a visual construct. Through maps and modeling, users don’t simply access information; they discover its context and build a richer picture of the past. This presentation will explore three approaches to spatially organizing historic information: use of Google Earth, GIS, and three dimensional modeling.  We will also discuss the challenges related to spatial metadata.
