Before I came to the USA three years ago, I was living on other side of this world, and
since I have arrived to the USA, people have asked me a common and friendly
question, "Where are you from?"
I am from Iraq; this question inspired me to create a story map, which is a tour map of
Iraq. Because each time I answer this question I was surprised people didn’t know much
about my country. So I thought this blog post is a good opportunity to share with the GIS student some information related to location and to the geographic nature of Iraq, by creating a tour map "Cascade." So in some way, through this tour map you can get an idea of the geography of Iraq and explore some places you might unfamiliar with..
What information does my tour map include?
