Google Mashups für Kartensammlungen

Einen Vortrag mit dem Titel "Google Mashups: A New Method for Locating and Accessing Library Map Collections" haben Kristi Jensen, Lisa Johnston und Gary Fouty von der University of Minnesota beim "2008 Joint Meeting of The Geological Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies with the Gulf Coast Section of SEPM" gehalten: "While print and online library catalogs used to organize maps have provided adequate access to many collections, new technologies allow libraries to explore alternative, geospatial interfaces which enhance a user's ability to independently find an appropriate map. Given existing technologies, it is possible to create an online map which allows users to geographically browse for and identify needed print and digital maps. The University of Minnesota Libraries implemented a pilot project to create a Google mashup interface which provides access to a portion of the map collections housed in several library locations across campus". Leider nur als Abstract abrufbar.
