Mapping New York’s Historic and Cultural Landscape
Creating interactive maps that link the state's intercultural heritage and opportunity landscape
New York has been shaped by extraordinary history and activism that is not always well known today. This project team is using Maptu to produce interactive maps to give students, tourists and even local residents a deeper understanding of the land and landscape, heritage and current realities, and communities of New York state. Starting with a handful of historic and cultural sites – the Seneca Nation in western New York, Howland Stone Store Museum, Seneca Falls National Park and Harriett Tubman home – these maps are designed to keep growing with new and enhanced entries from students and faculty, as well as local historians and community members.
