Authors: Ariel Blanco
The location where the first shot that triggered the Philippine-American War occurred has always been controversial. GIS was used to resolve this controversy by geospatially reconstructing what transpired during those crucial days using historical maps and vector layers. Using these layers, several descriptive accounts of the event were examined. It can be concluded that the first shot occurred in Sociego Street. GIS is powerful tool in properly interpreting historical events.
