Also of note is the Lewis and Clark Expedition GIS section. This visual voyage of discovery through map history starts with pre-expedition maps of the early 1800's, then includes Lewis' original 1814 map of the expedition routes, next carries through to the first complete Government Land Office surveys of the late 1800's, then into the modern age 1970 National Atlas, and finally to the space age of satellite imagery. The David Rumsey GIS Viewer allows visitors to interact with, integrate, and visualize these historic maps along with the modern geospatial data from NASA, USGS, ESRI and GCS Research.
