Delivering high-resolution map imagery
In partnership with the University of Maryland, ProQuest is conserving, deacidfying, encapsulating, and scanning from the originals over half of the 56,000 maps contained within the Serial Set. Not just color maps, but also many thousands of black and white maps that contain fine detail are being scanned from the originals in high resolution. Maps without color or fine detail will be available as lower resolution scans taken from the CIS Serial Set microfiche.
When the collection is complete, all maps will be served up seamlessly and with a minimum of download time and without having to download special plug-ins or components. Users will also have the ability to download the entire map in JP2 format.
