I georectified a 1867 map of the Village of Red Hook (in the town I live), and then created a web app using the ARCGIS platform.
At Historic Red Hook, I’ve been doing a lot of mapping projects with our collection, since more people have been walking around recently to get out of the house. It’s been a way to put our collections in their pocket and make it relevant to them. I’ve always wanted to experiment with geo-rectified maps, so this was a lot of fun. I’d like to apply it to a project that I have been doing on the google maps platform (which google is theoretically going to be deleting):
In 1926, Bassett wrote his memories about 19th and Early 20th century Village of Red Hook . I’ve plotted the locations he discusses, so being able to apply map layers would be a great addition to the project.
