Layers and Fusion Tables: the future of historical research?

Chris Bunin boldly led us into the world of GIS yesterday, and he has provided a number of documents to help you make the technology a part of your teaching.

Toward the end of his presentation, Chris noted that he was excited to hear that no one had explored GIS just yet — because that meant everything he presented was new.  And yet, he wishes the technology were more widely used and embraced.

What do you think?  Will GIS shape some of your lessons next year?  Are there particular aspects of our course that would be easier or more difficult to illustrate using GIS?

    Hi I stumbled on your blog from AllTop, I think the use of Geographical Information Systems will just continue to grow as the technology continues to evolve, thanks for taking the time to share the links in your post.
