Map Collection Digital Maps The Harvard Map Collection is one of the oldest and largest collections of cartographic materials in the United States with over 500,000 items. Resources range from 16th century globes to modern maps and geographic information systems (GIS) layers. A selection of our materials has been digitally imaged and is offered both as true picture images and georeferenced copies. This Virtual Collection includes those maps and atlases that are available through the Harvard Image Delivery Service. Those maps that have been georeferenced are available through the Harvard Geospatial Library. Therefore, many of the maps listed will have two records, one for the image that is true to the original and the other a georeferenced image. Only a small portion of the Map Collection has been cataloged and included in the HOLLIS catalog and an even smaller selection are included in this virtual collection as digital images.
Wind Map An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software. Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires :-) If the map is missing or seems slow, we recommend the latest Chrome browser. Surface wind data comes from the National Digital Forecast Database. If you're looking for a weather map, or just want more detail on the weather today, see these more traditional maps of temperature and wind.
MapMart Cloud Rolls onto the GIS Scene LONE TREE, COLORADO, January 9, 2012 – With the arrival of the New Year comes the formal release of the MapMart Cloud from MapMart. MapMart has long been the one-stop shop for traditional geospatial data and imagery acquisition and will remain so.

Going forward, the location and usage of GIS data will be faster, cheaper and occur with fewer searching and storage issues. The MapMart Cloud offers any user the ability to search a site, determine the web services available and begin using those services immediately either on a subscription or per-click basis.
