Education by map librarians
�Education by map librarians’ (instead of only �education for map
librarians’)
The website of the BibliothГЁque nationale de France (made for schools
and teachers) is recommended:

“Who is who”
Post-Amsterdam updates have been limited,
restricted to our Secretary sending out an extended
e-mail to all National Correspondents asking for an
update to the �Who is Who’ for each country response rates have been disappointing.
Should we review the topic headings under which
the individual map curators are listed? Are they still
relevant to our work?
Thanks to: John Moore

Graphic indexes
Developments have moved on considerably since Amsterdam. The Charles
Close Society website now has a fully functioning graphic index function
for the whole of Great Britain, which allows you to roam around and
automatically says which sheets of which series cover the point you are
hovering over. This was a collaboration between a computing expert
linked to a private geodesy site and the National Library of Scotland.
Petr Pridal’s Map Tiler, targeted at existing GIS users, and therefore
requiring a certain degree of expertise, runs totally on open source
software, and is easy to use. For it to work, the end user must supply fully
georeferenced data.
Petr’s OldMapsOnline service is a four-year project, which involves
suggesting a workflow for libraries, and also uses the Zoomify feature. It is
based on JPEG2000 and again uses open source software. There is much
inbuilt support for map indexing, warping images to fit into Google Maps.

1) Would any of you like to take these
issues further?
2) The Group needs a new Chairman – any
volunteers?
3) Thanks for your support over the past few years
