Info Reorganization at its best!

Neat, interesting (and pretty depressing as well), change over time map of Indian-help territories in the United States. I wish there were more control over the dates and a user-controlled scroll-bar beneath the map, but that’s a minor quibble. While the narrative and historiography about the US-Indian relations is pretty clearly in “recognize the wrongdoings of nineteenth century leaders,” this map nevertheless helps to drive home the point about just how dramatic a transformation this process really was.

      My critiques were more interface-based. On the original site the maps scroll/change-over much more slowly, but for some reason when embedded, they fly by at a frenetic pace. I wish the pace of change were more adaptable, but it’s nevertheless neat to see these types of projects.
