Project Overview

Partner Organization: Minnesota Geospatial Information Office.

In partnership with the Minnesota Geospatial Information Office, the Minnesota Historical Society is adding geographical markers to more than 120,000 of the Society's historic photographs.

One outcome of this initiative will be the creation of a web experience that will allow students and the public to use "place" as a gateway for discovering other collections materials.

This project will complement the Society's online photo collection and will be an access point for viewing other digital collections online.
