This video, which explains the dynamic web map on the Lienzo de Quauhquechollan website, won first place in the category of Best Virtual Map Presentation at the 2009 ESRI Users Conference in San Diego, California. The Lienzo de Quauhquechollan is an indigenous pictographic map dating from the time of the Spanish conquest of the Americas. It was created by the Quauhquecholteca to record their history, migrations, conquests, legends, and traditions. The dynamic web map was developed to allow users to relate the historical events documented in the Lienzo with geographic locations on a modern map. As modern-day storytellers, web maps can help to revive the stories of a people like the Quauhquecholteca, providing a space where we can approach geography like they did—as living geography.
