How do you effectively communicate history to the public? Is it better to visualize history as a myriad of varied threads, or is synthesis possible (or even desirable)? Being linked to local places, community histories are--in many ways--inherently geographic. The Virtual Illinois project is leveraging this geographic focus to develop new web and mobile mapping applications to communicate the natural and cultural history of Illinois.
