HCHS Events 2012 - Fourth Quarter
Sunday, December 2nd, 1:00-5:00PM

Join us for the last quarterly meeting of the year at Walkerton Tavern & Gardens, which is located at 2892 Mountain Road in Glen Allen, VA. Their phone number is (804) 261-6898.

Charles "Chuck" Peple will be our speaker. His topic is "Exploring History with Geographic Information Systems (GIS)".

Chuck indicated "GIS is a computer mapping system that allows you to create layers of information based on land maps and aerial photography. It is a great tool for archaeology and historic research. With it we were able to locate and visit historic sites in the field. In search of New Bridge, Strawberry Hill Plantation, and defining Civil War battlefield areas of intense conflict are a few examples of how it has been applied."
