New York Public Library
« on: 31 December 2016, 06:59:23 »
New York Public Library has many collections of images and prints, several of which include maps (and not just of the city).

This interesting article entitled Unbinding the Atlas: Working with Digital Maps describes the process they have been through, and how they now want to do much more with the maps in terms of warping, cropping, tracing.

The NYC Space/Time Directory will make urban history accessible through a set of resources including: a searchable atlas of New York past, an historical location directory and geocoder, a set of APIs and data sets, and a discovery tool linking NYPL collections together in an historical and geographic context. That web page includes many technical details and data sources. One tool already available is Maps by Decade.

The article The New York Public Library Has a “Digital Time-Travel Service” for Its Historical Maps describes what they are hoping to achieve.
