WKU Prof details historic Mexican mapping effort

Bowling Green, Ky – The government of Mexico is privatizing land previously held communally by some of the most poor, indigenous peoples of that country. Dr. David Keeling is head of the WKU Geography/Geology Department, and a member of the American Geographical Society. The AGS is creating some of the first-ever maps of these areas in an effort to empower those who might lose their land. Dr. Keeling spoke to WKU Public Radio about the effort.
