International Mapping & Equator Maps Release the Antietam Battle Map app for the iPad

October 26th, 2012

International Mapping Associates & Equator Maps have released the Antietam Battle Map app for the iPad. This application provides a visual guide to understanding the daily sequence of events that took place during a critical 1862 Civil War Battle. It is a must-have app for Civil War enthusiasts.

In September, on the 150th anniversary of the battle, the Antietam Battle app became available on iTunes as a free download for consumers. The first in a series of Civil War titles to be released by Equator Maps, it is based on work created for the Catoctin Center for Regional Studies at Frederick Community College with help from expert historians at the National Park Service.

The eight chapters of this application provide a rich understanding of the battle. The initial chapters show the context of the battle in the Potomac region as Confederate General Robert E. Lee and his troops moved from Virginia into Maryland. The Union troops under the command of General George McClellan followed Lee westward from Washington to the small Maryland town of Sharpsburg on Antietam Creek.

Other chapters show how important regional town centers such as Harpers Ferry, WV and Frederick, MD played a role. And how the terrain around the town of Sharpsburg, MD affected the course of the battle.

Mammoth Cave National Park

October 2nd, 2012

International Mapping worked with the National Park Service and Argentine Productions to create an animation showing the extent of the Mammoth Cave system and the most popular cave tour route. Using three-dimensional datasets derived from extensive mapping efforts of volunteers from the Park Service and the Cave Research Foundation, our video shows the over 400 miles of intricate layered passages of Mammoth cave and then highlights the historic “Lantern” tour that thousands of visitors take each year. Images of the cave passage were capture by laser scanning sensors and then stitched together to form a detailed portrait of this small section of the cave.
