 Finding physical maps and online

Interested in searching, discovering and paging our maps and atlases? Interested in finding maps online to view and embed or download? This workshop will show you how to do that and more.

Using the Center’s Technology

The center has two large high resolution screens – a presentation screen and a touch screen, a high resolution monitor, four oculus rifts and a hololens. Learn about how to use the technology to view cartographic and other spatial information.

Leveraging Mirador to study maps

The International Image Interoperability Framework, along with viewers such as Mirador allow you to view maps and other images on-the-fly from several libraries and museums across the world. Learn how to find and bring in maps to compare and contrast between different collections.
