Interactive Whaling Map Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

The Nantucket Historical Association has been working to augment its in-person exhibits with digital content. We worked with the NHA to create an online interactive map of the voyage of Nantucket natives Charles and Susan Veeder aboard the whaleship Nauticon to be displayed on the website for the Nantucket Whaling Museum. We used the information from Susan Veeder’s journal of the voyage to plot the journey and mark key events we thought were of interest. We recommend that the NHA continue to test the interactive map and solicit feedback about the map from its members.
