Objectives

• Create an historic atlas of Florida cities,using historic maps as GIS layers

• Link historical resourcesto the geo-temporal core & build query methods supporting discovery

• Author learning modules,as proof of concept,that allow users to walk through history both by location and through time

GIS Layers

Tampa1884

Using the Sanborn® maps to locate builds in know space

Maps are geo-rectified to match them to known points as described by longitude and latitude,

so that historic city information can be compared over time and with current urban plans.

GIS Layers

Using a GIS Interface

The user selects an area of interest either graphically or by search strategies.

GIS Layers

Using a GIS Interface

As the level of zoom increases, additional layers with identifying information appear. Here, zooming in on Gainesville’s Alachua County home.

Demo: Internet Interface

Demo:

Zoom to Gainesville, 1884.

The user mayeither point and click, or, search by a particular search strategy; here, by building Information.

Demo: Internet Interface

Demo:

Zoom to Gainesville, 1884.

The cigar factory in this block is identified by a red dot.

If the user so desired, they could see all of the cigar factories in Gainesville, or, in any or all of the target cities.

Clicking on a red dot (or, on any building) displays all of the known information about that building’s use and occupants at that approximate time.

Advanced queries will allow building uses and occupants over time.

This information is extracted from name rich resources.
