January 2007 Map Displays

"New" Map Displays in the GCMC

The "Map of the Month" for January 2007 in the Geospatial Center & Map Collection was a USGS topographic map of Ellis Island in New York. Ellis Island opened as a new immigrant screening station in January of 1892.

A 2004 map of Iran is the featured map in the "Maps in the News" section of displays.

Student-assistant Casey Gentis created this "Happy New Year Map of the United States" for display. The map features place names in the United States with the word "new."

Also featured in the windows of the GCMC is a GoogleEarth image of Dolphins Stadium in Miami, site of the 2007 Super Bowl.

Visit the GCMC to view the map displays or to borrow maps for a project, class assignment, or to display during a speech or presentation.
