Mapping The Grid

July 12, 2015, 5 - 6 PM
177 Canal Street, New York

MX presents Mapping The Grid, a talk by Shana Kimball and Mauricio Giraldo of NYPL Labs, who will speak about the NYC Space/Time Directory, a 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 makes urban history accessible through the kinds of interactive, location-aware tools used to navigate modern cityscapes. It provides a way for scholars, students, and enthusiasts to explore New York City across time periods, and to add their own knowledge and expertise.
