Social Media Week NYC at NYPL: Future Library: Socializing History with Maps

Share

February 8, 2011

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Wachenheim Trustees Room

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.
