Abstract

From the years 1000 to 1790, the families of the Lebu collective migrated from the Hodh region of present-day Mauritania, across Senegal, to the Cap-Vert Peninsula. Dr. John Glover, Professor and Chair of the Department of History at the University of Redlands, studies the history of the Lebu. In his research, Dr. Glover gathered the locations of many of the Lebu village sites, with plans to analyze the patterns of the Lebu migration. This project developed a web GIS application with which the client would be able to visualize the Lebu migration patterns and share the information worldwide. Additionally, the web application allows the users to contribute additional data about the Lebu migration, improving the database.
