National Park Service – Keweenaw National Historical Park

November 25th, 2011

The National Park service turned to International Mapping to produce two interactive kiosk applications for the newly formed Keweenaw National Historical Park in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Unlike a traditional national park with defined park boundaries, the Keweenaw National Historical Park spans the entire Keweenaw peninsula uniting public and private historical sites related to the copper mining history of the region.

The “Welcome to the Copper Country” kiosk application combined with a 4′ x 8′ solid terrain model of the region helps orient visitors to the geography of the Keweenaw Peninsula. The application provides detailed information about the three dozen historic sites across the peninsula which constitute the Park. A second component of the application offers up 9 different planned excursions. The excursions group the sites geographically and make the most of a visitors time to visit and explore the Park by offering half-day, full-day and two-day excursions.

The “Close-up on Calumet” kiosk application covers the historical development of downtown Calumet from crossroads to boom town to modern day. The program tells the life history of Calumet using a series of detailed oblique map images, 3-D buildings, text and historic and modern photos. Spanning the last two hundred years, the program visually guides the user through the settlement and copper mining related growth of the key mining town of Calumet, MI.

Imagining the Israeli-Palestinian Border

February 7th, 2011

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy turned to International Mapping to help illustrate possible Israeli / Palestinian land swap options. In conjunction with the publication of Imagining the Border, The Washington Institute has released a fully interactive online map resource. Users can explore the report’s various land swap proposals and see detailed information about every Israeli and Palestinian community in the West Bank. With satellite images and terrain maps drawn from the most up-to-date Google Earth database, the interactive map permits users to examine these proposals from a local perspective, down to the level of individual streets and buildings. In addition to the development of the core data and interactive mapping application, International Mapping also provided the Washington Institute with a series of accompanying poster map titles that can also be downloaded from the website.
