Resources for Students

One of our goals with MapStory, is to enable you (students) to better understand a complex, changing world that is normally described to you solely through (really boring) text – as if a long parade of place names from long ago has any real meaning to you. The past happened somewhere, and it is high time that someone show you where and when it happened, particularly as it relates to the world you live in today. MapStory is here to empower you to achieve a superior understanding of our world, and to help you throughout your life to be a more effective and successful person. Success, after all, is based on what you know. But, we promise you this. Knowing when and where it all went down is key. Work with us, and we will help you become badass. The future of the world is yours. But, not without an understanding of our rich past, and our complex present.

Why is this important?

MapStory relies on javascript for map display and animation. Without javascript, there's not much to see here. Sorry.
