Our Digital Scholarship Lab Collaboration

The Executive Abroad 1905-2016

Our FYS course has helped produce, through the University of Richmond’s award-winning Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL), a new map called “The Executive Abroad.” The map tracks the growth of presidential and secretary-of-state travel across the globe over the course of a century-plus. Part of the DSL’s American Panorama series, the map’s data was compiled by sixteen FYS students and the visualization was created and innovated by the DSL’s Rob Nelson and Justin Madron–completed in April 2017.
