Here's the assignment for Wednesday. If this differs from what you wrote down, this text is the one to follow. 1. Construct your case study's matrix of timeline and map. Start with a calendrical timeline indicating the Landmark Event. Or start with an appropriate location map and link it to the Landmark Event. 2. Start lists of items from the substantive categories for all the format categories. If you find no items, explain why. Remember that institutions and organizations are groups of persons. Other types of items may occur in groups as well. 3. Begin exchanging useful sources of information, both primary and secondary. Keep in mind that the beauty of the GEOMAT method is making accessible primary documents and data articulated in time and space by means of the calendrical timeline(s) and map(s). Get beyond the panoramic view of history often presented with a broad sweep of events. Search out and locate primary sources. Analogs to this method are detective stories and investigative reporting. It may be helpful for you to use one webpage for the matrix of timeline with map and another webpage to store all the source material you find until you articulate each item to its place in your expanding web architecture. You are the designer. There are a myriad of designs within the template of calendrical timeline with map/map with calendrical timeline.

Keep up the good work!
