Maps, Maps, and more Maps

Screen Shot 2013-02-26 at 12.15.00 AMThe Vancouver Archives has put some 500 plus maps up on their site! Maps are so much fun and this collection is a great resource.

“The project makes these maps available to everyone quickly online, and makes them easy to re-use. It reduces damage to the oversized originals due to handling, as they no longer have to be retrieved from storage. Very light-sensitive materials, like blueprints, may be kept in the dark so they don’t fade.”

The digitization project was made possible by funding from the British Columbia History Digitization Program at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, University of British Columbia.
