about

Fundamentally concerned with place, and our ability to understand human relationships with environment over time, Historical Geographic Information Systems (HGIS) as a tool and a subject has direct bearing for the study of contemporary environmental issues and realities. To date, HGIS projects in Canada are few and publications that discuss these projects directly even fewer. This book brings together case studies of HGIS projects in historical geography, social and cultural history, and environmental history from Canada's diverse regions. Projects include religion and ethnicity, migration, indigenous land practices, rebuilding a nineteenth-century neighborhood, and working with Google Earth.

Jennifer Bonnell is an assistant professor in the Department of History at York University. Marcel Fortin is the Map and GIS Librarian at the University of Toronto's Map and Data Library. He is also a sessional lecturer in both the Geography Department and the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto.
