Our mission is to integrate the exploration of Kentucky’s rich history and geospatial technologies education into public schools. The project supports collabration between students and community members around the state in mapping and gathering information about Kentucky’s historical markers.
Currently, many of the state’s historical roadside markers are not mapped. This project is building a public map and database of the location and other information about all historical markers in Kentucky.
This database will also provide the necessary data for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Board on Geographical Names’ National Map and Kentucky Historical society online Roadside Marker Database. Just as important, however, are the educational benefits of working with students and community members across the state to accomplish these goals.
