Historical maps are an evocative way to journey through time and space; yet, they are rarely easily accessible. Andre Comandon will explore the possibility of creating a digital platform for the many spatial layers St. Lawrence County has accumulated over the years – the changing town boundaries, the extent of forests and mining operations, the path of rivers, and people’s stories – to connect with the past and plan for the future.

Dr. Andre Comandon is a research scientist at the METRANS Transportation Consortium, a research center at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He studies (and maps) how the movement of people, through migration and daily mobilities, change cities in the U.S. and globally. He calls Madrid home since 2022.
