Making Maps, mapping history


This educational exhibit was originally created as a UW Sea Grant project funded by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Committee and produced in cooperation with the UW-Milwaukee American Geographical Society (AGS) Library and the UW-Madison Environmental Remote Sensing Center (now part of Space Science and Engineering Center). It was displayed in 1988-91 in eleven Wisconsin communities and had an estimated viewing audience of over 61,000.

In 2007 UW Sea Grant, in cooperation with the AGS Library and Space Science and Engineering Center updated and enhanced the exhibit to bring it to the Madison community in Memorial Library’s Department of Special Collections.
