Past Projects

This website was made by the Berea College “Mapping Appalachia” class, and most of the maps on the website were analyzed and categorized into select genres, media, and locations. To find out more about how this website was made, and the initial project, visit Mappalachia Creation.

In January 2013, 15 first-year students from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, used Mappalachia for course projects. This course, called “King Coal in Appalachia: Effects on Economy, Environment and Society,” focused on the ways in which coal mining has shaped eastern Kentucky. To learn more about the course and how Mappalachia was used in it, visit King Coal and Mappalachia.
