“The New York Public Library is planning a major civic initiative aimed at turning historical maps and other geographic sources into a digital time-travel service for New York City.
“The NYC Space/Time Directory will make urban history accessible through the kinds of interactive, location-aware tools used to navigate modern cityscapes. It will provide a way for scholars, students, and enthusiasts to explore New York City across time periods, and to add their own knowledge and expertise.”
