American Panorama Project

I like story maps especially when they are easy to understand, interactive, and easy on the eyes. Such is the case with the maps in the American Panorama Project. The maps present a historical atlas of the United States via a series of four interactive maps for the history buff or map lover to dive into topics such as:

  • The Forced Migration of Enslaved People (1810-1860)
  • Foreign-Born Population (1850-2010)
  • The Overland Trails (1840-1860)
  • Canals (1820-1860)

Don’t take my word for it explore for yourself.
