Description
Wisconsin locations are the current focus of this project to scan historic maps, including hundreds of Sanborn maps, a set of USGS topographical maps annotated by James P. Kaysen to show railroad history, original birds-eye views, and county maps showing landowners. The next phase of the project will involve scanning pre-1700 maps, including rare Renaissance and colonial-era maps of North America.
