Maps Viewed By Thomas Jefferson

From Envisaging The West website:

"Using GIS (Geographic Information Services) software, seven maps that shaped Thomas Jefferson's conceptions of the West have been transcribed and entered into databases, making them interactive. These processes link locations referenced in Envisaging the West's documents to corresponding points on the maps."
