Developing Digital Maps for Worcester Historical Museum Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Our group worked with Worcester Historical Museum to develop interactive digital map exhibits for inclusion in the redesign of their Fuller Gallery of Industrial History. Digital map exhibits were developed for the impact of railroads on the development of Worcester and for the growth and decline of Worcester's horse and electric trolley service. This IQP also created a framework for building and maintaining a digital carto-bibliography in Omeka. WHM can use this framework to catalogue and make available digital images of their historical map collection through www.digitalworcester.com. We expect our work to assist the WHM as they redesign the Fuller, manage their physical map collection, and increase access to their digital collections online.
