Thanksgiving Maps & Posters (Geology Library)

This Web Page provides links to maps showing where the foods eaten for Thanksgiving Dinner are grown in the United States. The links below can be used to view maps showing which states grow the most beans, carrots, celery, cranberries, onions, pecans, potatoes, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, squash, turkey and wheat. These maps were produced with a Geographic Information System (GIS), which is computer hardware, software and data that can be used to, map, store and analyze geographically referenced information. To learn more about GIS, see the IU Libraries' GIS Services web site.  You can also learn about GIS at GIS Day, which will be held November 11, 2004 in the Frangipani Room at the Indiana Memorial Union.
