Check out the Fall 2021 Digital Atlas Design Projects!

Undergraduate interns have completed their final projects for the fall 2021 Digital Design Atlas Internship taught by WHC Digital History Postdoc Susan Grunewald and WHC Director Ruth Mostern! Throughout the semester each intern performed historical research on a topic having to do with the global past and created their own atlas, a spatial database about that topic. Interns then combined writing, images, narrative, georeferenced historical maps, and interactive authored maps to tell a story about their topic using ArcGIS StoryMaps. Check out the fall 2021 projects below! For more about the Digital Atlas Design Internship, visit our education page and browse over 50 past projects here.
