Demonstration Maps
We have been working to find ways to highlight the geospatial coverage of our collections. These preliminary maps show our progress and illustrate the metadata inconsistencies across MWDL collections. The maps use the metadata in the field mapped to the Dublin Core refinement spatial, if any. Because MWDL has not yet recommended a common set of practices for values in this field, there are inconsistencies in practice, leading to difficulties with mapping. Technology: Google Maps and Google Fusion tables.

Resources by County -- Comparison of Two Strategies
These maps reflect some of the geospatial metadata issues in MWDL. We created two sets of searches to obtain information by county, one with the word "County" in the search string and the other without.
