Thursday, May 20, 2010
Chicago Map Society Meeting

Join us on a springtime expedition to a great local map collection at Northwestern University. Our guide, Chieko Maene, will introduce us to the collections (containing more than 200,000 maps) and will give us an overview of the GIS resources and services they provide. We will see the very rare map of Evanston published around 1871 by Theodore Reese and we’ll learn about the digitization, restoration, and preservation that the University undertook on the map.
