  • Future Library: Socializing History with Maps, Hosted by The New York Public Library

    Event Description:

    Explore how collections of historic materials such as maps can be made accessible and relevant using crowd-sourced geo-rectifying technology and how these modernized maps can be used as ways to discover places and their (hi)stories using social geo-location and mapping technology. NYPL geo-spatial librarian Matt Knutzen will demo the Library’s open-source map warper that can be tried-out at a Citizen Cartographers workshop.
