Georeference, combine, and explore old fire insurance maps of Louisiana communities.

Get Started!

Content Overview

Through the course of the project more and more content will be added. All maps come from the Library of Congress Sanborn Map Collection

Registered users can load old fire insurance maps to begin georeferencing their content.

Browse or Load Volumes »

When a volume is loaded, a Document is created for each sheet, and users can prepare and georeference it.

Browse Documents »

When a Document is georeferenced it becomes a geospatial Layer. Layers can be viewed, used by external software, or combined here in web maps.

Browse Layers »

Interactive web maps can be created on this site, allowing Layers to be combined into seamless historical map mosaics.
