Mapping Our Past
Colorado's Geography: Mapping Our Past is a set of activities for elementary- and middle-grades students to explore Colorado's historical geography. The project includes standards-based geography content and geographic information science (GIS) mapping technology. Units cover Colorado's regions and environment and historical changes in its population, transportation, and economic resources.
The GIS database is free for download and is available in ESRI Geodatabase format.
We invite your suggestions to improve the activities. The project’s coordinators, Phil Klein and Dave Diggs of the University of Northern Colorado’s Department of Geography, GIS, and Sustainability welcome your comments at: firstname.lastname@example.org
A Special Thanks
