THIS EXHIBIT traces the evolution of mapmaking since the 1600s and the historical influence of the Great Lakes on the history of Wisconsin. The original maps were collected for an exhibit at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Memorial Library Department of Special Collections, March 19 through June 29, 2007.
The maps are from the UW-Milwaukee American Geographical Society (AGS) Library and the UW-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center. The AGS Library is one of North America’s foremost geography and map collections. The Space Science and Engineering Center includes one of the first remote sensing facilities in the United States.
