This thesis focuses on creating a GIS tool for the Department of History showcasing the history of the Mughal Empire and lifetime of Mughal rulers in Indian subcontinent. The users have the ability to click on particular events and see more details on respective web pages. This approach presents an effective learning tool for students by providing an interactive environment. Using a computer simulation is much more engaging and better aligned to the interests of modern students. Moreover, the students also have the ability to customize the application environment to suit their individual interests. By utilizing modern computer technology to present an important subject in an engaging and interesting fashion, this work could become an effective learning tool in the modern classroom not just for students, but also the instructors who can handle bigger class sizes with greater ease. The application has been made in the Java programming language and utilizes the Map Object Java Edition (a.k.a MOJO) API, which is provided free by ESRI. Using MOJO, GIS related features can be easily incorporated into the application. A key design challenge in any learning tool is to have the interface as simple and intuitive as possible while not compromising on the feature set. Subsequently, every attempt has been made to present a rich depth of subject knowledge through a lucid yet powerful interface.
