Practice Map: Burleigh Performing Burleigh

It’s time to get back into the swing of things! This map was a quick build in order to practice embedding audio samples (via Spotify) into ArcGIS. I used data from Dr. Snyder’s Burleigh bible to include 13 known instances of Burleigh performing his own...

Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Heading

CURI 2019 is here! The sun is out and the Musical Geography website is open on my computer. Especially after reading through the interim team’s final blog posts, it is clear that we accomplished so much more than we thought we would.  For one, all of our maps are in...

A List For the Next Brave Soul

For my last blog post as apart of the Winter 2019 team, I would like to offer my reflection in the form of a list containing my biggest takeaways from this experience. If this was a CD, it would be a compilation album of all jams. Time is Money… But So Are Breaks:...
