Digital Heritage Mapping is a multi-disciplinary 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that melds age-old scholarship with 21st Century technology to assert the importance of physical location to the understanding of history. We pioneer the synthesis of traditional scholarship, fieldwork, and multimedia technologies—satellite imagery (complete with terrain, zoomable perspectives, tiltable views and 360-degree rotation), immersive panoramas, three-dimensional architectural reconstructions, archival and contemporary photography, and place-based oral history recordings—to create virtual entry points to once vibrant, yet now largely vanished, communities.
