KATH 2013: “Using Geographic Information Systems to Analyze Kentucky Battlefields” with Scott Dobler (left), KY Geography Alliance, WKU

This just in from WKU geography professor, Scott Dobler of the Kentucky Geography Alliance (presenter at the 2013 KATH conference):

The Kentucky Geographic Alliance and National Geographic Education is partnering with H-Kentucky on H-Net <> to celebrate Geography Awareness Week.

A series of Kentucky-based maps will be presented to the Kentucky P12 community. Education and content experts will be answering questions from you and your class about the maps and other questions engaged in the series of blogs. Please stop in for some interesting conversations.

The conversation will begin on Monday, and you can access it through the Kentucky Geographic Alliance Blog via the H-Kentucky network. In order to join the conversation on the content presented, first log in at H-Kentucky (create an account <>) and then post your comments.

We will also be promoting Geography Awareness Week information via our Facebook <> and
Twitter <> pages, so be sure to interact with us there as well.
