Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer rich tools that enable archives to locate their collection materials on a map. Creative possibilities abound, from guiding visitors through a story map to charting a city's growth throughout centuries. Before beginning such a project, archivists must consider the expertise and partners needed to make it successful. Panelists will discuss their GIS-based projects, including how to forge new partnerships, address audiences' needs, and adapt archival descriptive practices across disciplines.
