Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

 

The book succeeds brilliantly in its aims. The production is of the highest quality, with a clear layout of text and illustrations, an unambiguous editing, and the superb quality of the many coloured maps and diagrams.

—Ken Atkinson, British Journal of Canadian Studies

 


 

Historical GIS Research in Canada offers an approachable yet expansive introduction to HGIS and the ways in which it is being used in Canadian historiography.

—Jessica DeWitt, Network in Canadian History & Environment

 


 

The editors of Historical GIS Research in Canada do a masterful job of highlighting the obstacles of HGIS while offering perspective of the state of the science . . . I look forward to future publications by these editors to see more of what HGIS has to offer and what answers it can provide.

Christine Delbridge, MIRCS Review

 


 

A wonderful collection of thirteen essays . . . A confident assertion of promise realized.

—Deryck Holdsworth, BC Studies

 


 

Significantly raises the bar . . . The contributors to this volume have made a stunning case for the use of spatial history to better understand the interactions between people and place in Canada's past.

—Ken Sylvester, The Canadian Historical Review
