The David Rumsey Collection announces a new GIS Browser available online at www.davidrumsey.com. The GIS Browser allows integration and interaction of historical maps with current geospatial data and other historical maps.
The current geospatial data that can be overlaid and compared to the historical maps includes roads, lakes, parks, state boundaries, digital orthophotos (aerial photography), topographic mapsheets, digital elevation models and satellite imagery. The GIS Browser is available in two versions on the site, a GIS Basic Browser for those new to GIS and a GIS Professional Browser for those familiar with GIS conventions.
Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC) records are being created for online maps and other images in the David Rumsey Collection. These records are available in OCLC and RLIN, as well as in the University of California, Berkeley's Pathfinder Catalog, and in the University of California's Melvyl Catalog. All can be retrieved by a corporate name search on David Rumsey Collection. The cataloging is provided by a joint project of the Rumsey Collection and the Earth Sciences and Map Library at UC Berkeley.
Checklists of titles cataloged, giving Library of Congress Geographic Classification Code, Subject Code, Brief Title, Author and OCLC number, will be prepared periodically. If you would like to receive copies of these checklists, please contact Phil Hoehn firstname.lastname@example.org They are available either in Excel or HTML format (specify which you would like). In the near future these lists will also be posted on our website. http://www.davidrumsey.com
