- Old Florida Maps – University of Miami Libraries
Old Florida Maps tells the story, using digital reproductions of maps from monographs and private collections held locally in South Florida, of how Florida came to be represented in the current geographic form familiar to us all. The author of this scholarly endeavor is Dr. Joseph Fitzgerald, founder and chairman of the Miami International Map Fair at the Historical Museum of Southern Florida, whose keen scholarly interest in the history of the cartographic representation of Florida evidences itself in the many detailed descriptions of maps he has authored for the project's digital presentation. The University of Miami Libraries, whose Department of Digital Initiatives, Resources, and Services, has provided digital imaging services and web presentation in support of Dr. Fitzgerald's vision, are proud to present Old Florida Maps on the web for free and open access to students, scholars, and map enthusiasts all over the world.
