We have a rich history of cartography in the White Mountains, but until recently, we were limited in our ability to interpret our world to what we could see. The digital age has ‘opened our eyes’ to a spatial realm that we can render and reimagine in ways that defy our predecessors. Larry Garland, who established AMC’s digital cartography program in 1996 and has served as staff cartographer ever since, tells the story of how satellite and aerial imagery, GPS, Lidar, 3D terrain models, and crowdsourcing on social media have reshaped our world – or at least our understanding of it.
Presented as part of the Museum’s summer exhibition: Wayfinding: Maps of the White Mountains. The Summer 2021 Speaker Series was made possible with support from New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
