Travelling Back to the Old Community – Virtually
Tools and techniques will be presented that let people explore places they may never visit in person. Given the current environment, we can travel without leaving home.
It is easy to locate current places, including small towns, libraries, cemeteries, and churches and visit those places with StreetView. Historic map overlays let us look at what was there. Using Mashup we can combine multiple sources to experience Community Walks, TripperMap and create our own map with MapBuilder.
