Harvard Map Collection

Harvard Map Collection
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 Hollis and an even smaller selection are included in this virtual collection as digital images.

The DMMapp is an open source app that links to digital repositories containing digitized western medieval manuscripts from all over the world. Finding digitized repositories can be difficult, and we want to create a central hub that can help medievalists, codicologists, and enthusiasts to find the medieval manuscripts they are searching for. Who made the DMMapp? The DMMapp is a project by Giulio Menna, MA, and Marjolein de Vos, MA. I love the DMMapp! Contribute to the DMMapp If you are aware of a library that is not on our DMMapp, you can use the "Add a Missing Library" form to let us know. I would like to base a project on the DMMapp!
