Maps of Barbados at Ball State University Libraries

Mapping Where in the World Is Matt Lauer?

The last stop is Barbados for Today Show host Matt Lauer’s weeklong journey for the segment Where in the World Is Matt Lauer? The GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) on the second floor of Bracken Library has been featuring maps from the collection for each of Lauer’s destinations.

The GRMC includes a varied collection of maps of Barbados and other islands of the Caribbean. The newest map depicting Barbados is a National Geographic map of the islands of the West Indies. The map shows major highways, tourist information, physical maps, and color illustrations on the verso.

Barbados is also included in a set of topographic maps of the West Indies published by the British Overseas Surveys Directorate. Several tourist and political maps of Barbados and the Caribbean are also available from the GRMC in both folded and flat format.

Special encapsulated and laminated maps are available for use in exhibit and presentations. Maps from the GRMC circulate for two weeks or longer. For more information, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097 or email
