The Interactive National 4-H History Map: A Youth-Led GIS Team Project
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Timothy Prather, Austin Ramsey, Edward DeWane
4-H has roots in youth agriculture and home economics programs in place before the Cooperative Extension Service was created by the Smith-Lever Act of 1914. The National 4-H GIS Leadership Team developed the National 4-H History Map and web apps in ArcGIS Online to preserve and share the rich 4-H history and heritage. Team members will share the process of creating, promoting and managing this live map, and highlight some of the historic points of interest that have appeared on the map.
