TU partners with National Park Service to map the women’s suffrage movement

The Suffragist Stories Project, created by the National Park Service in collaboration with Towson University and the Center for GIS, recently launched a story map that connects more than 900 individuals and 200 historic sites. The women’s suffrage storymap is easily accessible and one of the most comprehensive archival GIS sites dedicated to this movement in U.S. history.

The TU Center for GIS has been empowering Maryland's geospatial community for over 25 years and collaborates with clients to identify, analyze, and better understand data to enhance information access, deliver new insights, and utilize technology to inform business decisions.
