Changing Landscapes: A Digital Map Archive of the Gulf Coast

Changing Landscapes: A Digital Map Archive of the Gulf Coast

This project will support the digitization and publication of 100 historic maps and preservation of graphic map art sourced from local newspapers from 1880 to 1930, managed by Nola DNA (Digital Newspaper Archive), exploring hidden facets of old New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. The hidden histories found in the maps expose forgotten details of how our physical landscape has changed over time. Scanned maps will be presented via a website making the resource accessible to artists, historians, librarians, and the general public.
