This event has been canceled. D/M/S is a conversation series that will leave you buzzing with curiosity about the intersection of mapmaking and history. In each episode we open a window onto the world of historical GIS work: from the puzzles to the solutions, from the patterns to the (often juicy) idiosyncrasies. Tune in to Imperiia's Instagram channel (@imperiiaproject) every other Friday.
Ep. 2: What To Do When 4,000 Maps Take Over Your Life
Imagine 4,000 nineteenth-century topographic maps lying in the basement of the James Madison building of the Library of Congress, collecting dust. Join Imperiia team members Charles Pflieger and Kelly O'Neill to learn about the work we are doing on this mountain of maps and some of the gems and quirks of the collection.
