Do you just need a map and fast? Nothing fancy, just the basics?
It is possible to create your own map courtesy of the Online Map Creation website. To create a map here you need to know the longitude and latitude of the area you want to map. So, for instance, here is a map I created for the Czech Republic. This took me, oh, two minutes. (Click on the map for a bigger view.)
The teaching possibilities for this free tool are many. First of all, this is a very nice way to introduce students to the concept of longitude and latitude and to the idea of geolocating historical information. For instance, students might be required to create a map that showed their address on it, which they can determine by knowing the geographic coordinates of their address. These data can be obtained through various services like Google Earth. Once they’ve geolocated their home, they could then do the same with a great event in history, or any other bit of information they want, like the location of a particular image. The OMC site allows users to plot specific locations and name them–so long as you know the coordinates you need. The aesthetics leave something to be desired, but for basic lessons in geography and history, this tool could work.
