After attending the XSLT workshop at DHSI 2013, I built this map using a KML file created from the XML representing all the places listed in the LGLC dataset.

We hope to integrate this data with the event data, and place it into one comprehensive map/timeline similar to the prototype for 1964:
As part of a Web Mapping Applications course in my GIS program, I’ve been testing out various platforms for mapping the LGLC dataset.
First came Google Fusion Tables. Here I used two Fusion Tables, one with the event data from the LGLC dataset and the other which creates the Provincial border polygons using KML coordinates. View full map.
Then came the open source equivalent of Google Fusion Tables, CartoDB, in combination with Stamen’s Toner map style.
Finally, I used Google Maps in combination with TimeMap (built on the Simile Timeline) to create a timeline and map combination showing the actual individual events, publications, and organizations for the year 1964. View full map.
Quite enjoying my class with Ian Gregory on Geographical Information Systems in the Digital Humanities, so much so that this map resulted: The gay people! They’re spreading!
