HASH(0xa851942c) out of 5 stars conference in a book April 4 2008
By Warren G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book wasn't quite what I thought it was going to be, but I still enjoyed it. As is explained in the introduction of the book, a lot of the sections, as well as the presentations on the included data disc, are the result of a conference dealing with using GIS in historical research. The book is well written, with each contributor taking care to present each topic in an objective light. The book is better read a section at a time, as trying to read it straight through can get very overwhelming, due to so much information being presented.

HASH(0xa8519a5c) out of 5 stars An excellent set of examples on how GIS interpretations and usage affects history. May 8 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
PLACING HISTORY: HOW MAPS, SPATIAL DATA AND GIS ARE CHANGING HISTORICAL SCHOLARSHIP challenges historians and historical geographers to use information science wisely, as it vastly affects historical scholarship and historical revision processes. College-level holdings strong in GIS analysis, use, and historical analysis alike will find PLACING HISTORY an invaluable link between cartography, geographic assessment and history. Case studies and regional analysis blend in an excellent set of examples on how GIS interpretations and usage affects history.

HASH(0xa85198b8) out of 5 stars Dated but highly informative Feb. 20 2014
By Robert C. Kahlert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The plurality of approaches and the clever ways in which they are applied to the various historical problems comes across well.
The resulting graphs, charts and maps are beautiful and drive the points home.
With the explosion of research in this area since 2007, it would be nice to get an update.
The book undersells the effort of getting the datasets to come out just so, but then that is boring for most people to read.

Just not what I thought I was getting. Hoping for more basic text and help in getting started.
