Intersections: A Local Transformation is a journey across geography, time and information, tracking the evolution of the neighborhood encompassing The Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, the anchor of the New York Public Library system. This animated, historical map flyover of the neighborhood, was created using Google Earth Pro and edited in Final Cut Pro. The maps were "warped" or georectified using the NYPL's publicly available historical map tools at maps.nypl.org and the historical depictions of buildings were taken from digitalgallery.nypl.org. The video represents new methods and tools for studying and visualizing a vast array of library collections through the common threads of place and time.
