GIS Projects

NRHP StoryMap

Last fall, intern Alana Hansen’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) department project focused on connecting the National Register of Historic Places in the San Diego region.

The purpose of her project was to create a user-friendly guide to San Diego history, beginning with Spanish contact. By using the National Register of Historic Places database, Alana was able to connect physical spaces with specific time periods in San Diego history. In the process, Alana has created a tool where users may virtually, and also physically, explore the unique stories and histories that San Diego has to offer.
