More Digital Hawai Maps!

Recently announced by our maps department:

MAGIS is pleased to announce that a set of Hawaii Historical Topographical Quadrangle Maps 1910-1933 is now online and available for download.  As far as we tell, these are not available elsewhere in a downloadable format.

-These are in 1:31,650 scale for all the islands except for Oahu which
is at 1:20,000 scale.
-These are downloadable as a geotiff, which means that it can be
imported into a Geographical Information System.  You may also simply
view the tiff as a jpeg with any image viewer.
-Maps for Oahu, Kahoolawe, Lanai and Niihau are forthcoming.

This project is truly a collaboration/partnership.  Many many thanks go to:

Henry Wolter at the United States Geological Survey who provided us with
the maps.
Ev Wingert of Geography and his colleagues who scanned the maps and
converted them into geotiffs.
