The project began with photographic prints, bound paper city directories and large format maps and atlases. Converting these resources into digital content that would serve the needs of the project and, ultimately, those who use the tools we provide, took numerous steps and involved people working across the city, the country and the world.

While most of the documentation produced during the project is very narrowly specific, we have have tried to present some of what we think are the most generalizable guidelines, procedures and technical documentation. We are also pleased that we can offer the actual datasets that were derived from the maps and directories.
