essentially focused on position, and our skill to appreciate human relationships with setting through the years, historic Geographic info platforms (HGIS) as a device and a topic has direct bearing for the research of up to date environmental concerns and realities. so far, HGIS tasks in Canada are few and courses that debate those tasks at once even fewer. This e-book brings jointly case reviews of HGIS initiatives in historic geography, social and cultural background, and environmental historical past from Canada's various areas. tasks contain faith and ethnicity, migration, indigenous land practices, rebuilding a nineteenth-century local, and dealing with Google Earth.
