Charting a More Perfect Union: NOAA's Historical Map and Chart Collection

 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of Coast Survey has made its collection of historical  maps and charts available online for viewing and free download. The Coast Survey was founded in 1807 by President Thomas Jefferson to survey the United States' coast. Additional collections include land sketches, Civil War battle maps, and aeronautical charting from the 1930s to the 1950s, among other highlights.

Users can search for specific charts and maps or browse through collections of both. Interesting collections include the Coast Survey's work during the Civil War, Surface Currents of the Great Lakes, and New York Bay and Harbor. Of course, none of the historical charts are suitable for navigation, but they are public domain and available for reuse.

GeoData@UC Berkeley with MapUp Released

The UC Berkeley Libraries are excited to announce the release of GeoData@UC Berkeley with MapUp, a geoportal and geospatial data sharing application.

GeoData@UC Berkeley allows users to discover the library's geospatial data holdings, preview geospatial data, create custom maps using only a web browser, and download geospatial data in a variety of formats. GeoData@UC Berkeley currently contains over 9,000 geospatial data layers from UC Berkeley, Harvard University, and MIT.

GeoData@UC Berkeley is part of a consortium of geoportals created by Tufts University, Harvard University, MIT, Princeton University, and the Massachusetts Office of Geographic Information (MASSGIS).

MapUp is an application developed by the UC Berkeley Libraries to allow UC Berkeley students, faculty, and researchers to store and share their geospatial data with GeoData@UC Berkeley users. Anyone with a valid CalNet ID can upload data to MapUp.

For more information about GeoData@UC Berkeley or MapUp, please contact John Ridener, GIS Specialist/Map Cataloger at the Earth Sciences and Map Library: jridener@library.berkeley.edu
