ArcGIS Mapping

My experience working with arcgis has been a lot of fun. There are many things I learned about Tarlton and the Queens Tour that I was not able to figure out at first but there were also many questions that we were trying to figure out while working with this tool. Such as: How did […]

Mapping ArcGIS MoEML

Using both of these different styles of Mapping tools have definitely helped me get a better understanding of Tarlton and the Queen’s men troupe. Both tools have given me a visual of what England was like in the 1580’s and what his route and life may have been like back then. By just reading the […]

Reflection Post 5: Mapping

For our mapping portion of the course, we worked with the Map of Early Modern London and we created a story map in ArcGIS Online. Both were extremely useful ways to help visualize what we were reading in a new, geographic way. The MoEML and ArcGIS helped me to create research questions about issues relating […]

Where in the World is Richard Tarlton: GIS and Mapping

“You have just experimented with two types of mapping in historical contexts: working in the Map of Early Modern London interface and creating a story map in ArcGIS Online. You also worked with two different types of place-oriented data: place references in “Tarlton’s Jests” and place/date data for the Queen’s Men on tour in 1583. […]

Mapping

Spatial thinking and GIS helped me visually learn where each of Tarlton’s jest took place, and where Tarlton spent most of his time performing which was mostly west of London. After seeing the distances between the performances, it showed me just how much Tarlton had to travel to perform. Seeing these performance locations on the […]

TARLTONS TACTICAL TRAVELING

Over the past couple of weeks I have received great insight on how to utilize tools such as Arc GIS, and Map journals to analyze and interpret how Tarlton and colleagues traveled from place to place, town to town, performance to performance. I’ve learned that through the use of Arc GIS and its different modules […]

The Map of Early Modern London and ArcGIS

Working with ArcGIS and the Map of Early Modern London to look at places both where Tarlton referenced in his jests as well as where the Queen’s Men traveled provided a lot of information and clarification for me. Personally, I am a very visual learner; I succeed most when I can see the information in […]

ArcGIS vs. Map of Early Modern London

Being able to visualize Richard Tarlton’s and his troop’s paths and destinations through use of ArcGIS has thoroughly helped me understand and learn more about the Queen’s Men.  By being able to inspect the specific routes of the troop, I have formed multiple questions regarding their trip.  There are a multitude of inconsistencies with the […]
