Georeferenced Maps from The Digital Blue Ridge Parkway

Selected maps from the The Digital Blue Ridge Parkway project were georeferenced in order to provide the interactive Maps feature of the digital collection.

This site provides access to these georeferenced maps in a format suitable for use in Geographic Information System (GIS) software.
The georeferenced maps are packaged in zip files, accompanied by a readme.txt file and metadata.
