Website of the Week



Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States 
The Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL) of the University of Richmond
http://dsl.richmond.edu/historicalatlas/

This digital atlas presents the cartographic history of the United States but also features the latest interactive technology. The website offers many different entry points for visitors to explore the collection of digitized maps, with the time-lapse feature being a favorite of mine.

The Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL) of the University of Richmond created this digital version of the Charles O. Paullin and John K. Wright's 1932 Atlas of Historical Geography of the United States.

Reproducing nearly 700 maps, this digitization project has enhanced the original collection and added the dramatic functionality of 21st century technology. The Atlas will trace for you the expedition of Lewis and Clark and many other explorers. I suggest that you start with the Table of Contents to see the many ways this resource can be integrated into classroom curriculum or used for your own exploration in our American past.
