Atlas of Maine 2005
The Atlas of Maine 2005 was
developed by students in Introduction to GIS and Remote Sensing,
an interdiscpilinary course in the Environmental Studies Program at Colby
College. The goal of this project was to develop a series of maps highlighting
the unique human and natural resources of Maine. To view the Atlas of Maine 2006 click here. To view the Atlas of Maine 2008 click here.
The maps were originally created
in ArcGIS 9 and exported to the web using ArcIMS, an internet map server
from ESRI. To view the
maps using ArcIMS, click on one of the the links below. To view a map
as a PDF document, click the PDF link next to the map description. The
paper maps were originally created as 42 x 48 inch posters and reduced
to 8.5 x 11 inches to faciliate download by PDF. Please note: The IMS
and PDF maps are large files so it may take a few minutes to load unless
you are using a high-speed internet connection. ArcIMS works well
with Windows operating systems running Internet Explorer. MacIntosh OS
X users may need Mozilla Firefox
to open and view the dynamic ArcIMS maps.
